Change Thrivers: Your Resource Guide for Making Change Work

Type: 
Book
Description: 

We all have to face change in our lives. When the aftermath of cancer treatment, numerous medical problems and life changes began to overwhelm me and I didn't know how to cope I was miraculously given yet another gift in the form of this workbook from my friend, fellow artist and now author Afsaneh Noori.

All I can say is "When the student is ready the teacher will come" I had promised Afsaneh that I'd review her new book for the magazine I write for. Then I put it aside.

I began experience symptoms of post traumatic stress from the medical trauma which had consumed my life for the past 3+ years and I sat contemplating what to do next...then I saw the book in my "to do" pile...and it has helped me begin this next chapter as a SURVIVOR. The exercises have allowed me to ask for the help I need, to look for a Cancer Survivor group or therapy and reflect upon my cancer experience and begin the changes necessary to begin living again.

This is a very user friendly self guided workbook to assist with change. No matter what YOUR change is..cancer, loss, grief, marriage, divorce, relocation...you name it. I think this book can help.

Between A Rock And A Hard Place

Type: 
Book
Description: 

A book not about cancer but abour SURVIVORSHIP and the triumph of the human spirit. This book helped me while i was going through cancer. Aron Ralston is a rock climber...his forte is 14,000 foot mountains. He and I have nothing in common other than a love of nature and willingness to overcome the odds. I am not an athlete, he is. I chose this book because he is a survivor and so am I.

On a solo climb, Aron became stuck literally between a huge 800 lb. bolder and the side Blue John Canyon in Utah...for six days. With no hope of rescue he cut off his own arm to save himself.

I thought if Ralston could do that, I'd survive cancer. And I DID!
