"Fighting My Way Through Breast Cancer With Poetry"

Type: 
Book
Description: 

When Diana Ballinger was diagnosed with breast cancer, she had no idea what lay ahead. The surgery, crippling side-effects of chemo and radiation, and the emotions that threatened to boil over pushed her to write for her life. This mother and wife feared she couldn't fight cancer and fulfill her family and work responsibilities. She dealt with the disfigurement, loss of employment and the travails of insurance by writing poetry. Ballinger knew she was more than her breast cancer. She wanted her daughter to have a normal life while she underwent treatment and she was determined to make that happen. What she didn't expect, is how much her daughter would help her. "Fighting My Way Through Breast Cancer With Poetry" takes the reader step by step through her journey. It is her first book. Ballinger lives in California with her husband, Dick and her 16 yr. old daughter, Ashley, and celebrated her 1 yr. anniversary as a survivor in Feb. 2009.
Hearing "you have breast cancer" is terrifying, the start of an emotional roller coaster. For the 1 in 7 who are diagnosed, Ballinger's book will help navigate the journey from diagnosis to survivor.

Life, Happiness... & Cancer: Survive with action and attitude!

Type: 
Book
Description: 

New Zealand author Phil Kerslake relates his experiences and insights with warmth, humour and pragmatism. Enlisting the contributions of some of the world’s leading cancer researchers and practitioners, this world-recognised six-time cancer survivor shows how to use action and attitude to support cancer recovery.

This book shows how:

• To cope with a cancer battle as you never thought you could
• What being a fighter really means
• What being an "active patient" involves in practice
• To turn faith and hope into verbs and wishes into actions
• To convene a life path audit that will feed your will to live
• To create a life with more balance, meaning and fulfilment

Cover-endorsed by world-renowned US author Susan Jeffers PhD, author of Feel the Fear and Do It Anyway and Embracing Uncertainty: “Whether cancer is presently part of your life or not, this is probably one of the most important books you will ever read. It is inspiring, informative, courageous, and life-affirming. It is a recipe for a beautiful life and it moved me deeply … as it will you.”

The most popular cancer support book in New Zealand since 2006 with over 11,000 purchases as at May 2009, this book has now been released in Australia and is contracted for publication and distribution throughout the Continent of Africa, in Turkey and in Poland later in 2009.
