I Am Not My Breast Cancer

Type: 
Book

This is a new book taken from an online Breast Cancer Support Group called First Person Plural. 800 women from 49 states and several other countries participated. The discussions were compiled into a book. The book is described on the cover with the following words: "Women talk openly about love and sex, hair loss and weight gan, Mothers and Daughters, and being a woman with Breast Cancer." I was one of the women who contributed and after reading the book, I have to say I am proud to be a part of this project.

Fighting Cancer with the Help of Your Catholic Faith

Type: 
Book
Description: 

Very helpful book for me. I wish I had this book right after I found out about my cancer, but found it even more helpful after I found it. It does help me as I talk to others about what I am going through. The book is true by it saying that Cancer is a lonely disease. It is but with the help of this book. I learned to find peace with my illness and accepting cancer is a little easier even though I have still have fears of it coming back. I feel I can accept it if it chooses to come back.

Essiac Tea

Type: 
Web site
Description: 

Essiac, given its name by Rene Caisse ("caisse" spelled backwards), consists of four main herbs that grow in the wilderness of Ontario, Canada. The original formula is believed to have its roots from the native Canadian Ojibway Indians.

The four main herbs that make up Essiac are Burdock Root, Slippery Elm Inner Bark, Sheep Sorrel and Indian Rhubarb Root.

Many believe Rene Caisse is one of the greater heroines of the past century.

This modest Canadian nurse discovered a natural herbal forumla she took no money for it and died in relative obscurity.

The initial use of Essiac was encouraging, so much so that a group of doctors assisted her in setting up a test lab and clinic in Toronto. It has been used as an alternative treatment for cancer with success.
