My Healing Companion

Type: 
Book
Description: 

The most awesome journal I've seen to date--our Regional Cancer Center Support Group had a speaker on Journalizing (using poetry or painting)
she presented every member a book at the close.

Roche Laboratories Inc. was kind enough to make the books available to Doctors/Cancer Centers for
cancer survivors. They cannot be obtained from the company--you must go through the Pharm Rep.

It is the sharing of Beverly Katherine Krikhart who is a breast cancer survivor since 1993. This
companion will bring out the roller coaster of our
memories/emotions and the flood gates of tears that are so vital to total healing. It is the one thing I can't imagine being without and will very
definitley complete for my family. 217 pages with room for cards, letters, milestones, triumphs, the
little let downs and the huge celebrations of this
new after-cancer life.

I encourage all to check with the Cancer Center in
their area or Cancer Doctor(s) to ask if they see the Roche Pharm. Rep to request a copy for you to
begin your Healing Companion.
