The Healing Journal

June 09, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 186

The Healing Journal, Taking Control of Your Journey Through Cancer, by Lynda Peterson is a well-written and organized book that will encourage cancer victims to live their lives to the fullest extent possible as they travel the paths of their healing journeys. The author tells her story in an inspiring, unique, and wonderfully honest way, expressing the varied range of emotions she felt during her two separate battles with cancer. Both times, her husband, children, other family members, and faithful friends supported the author through each step of the healing processes. Today she is cancer-free and doing all she can do to help others who have been given a diagnosis similar to the ones she received. Because Lynda Peterson provides much wisdom regarding her illnesses, not only to patients, but also to caregivers, this book has more than one targeted audience. From my own personal experience, I believe it would be a practical resource for any individual who is suffering from any type of life-threatening illness.

In the initial section of her book, Peterson tells the personal story of her illnesses and subsequent treatments in a way that kept me mesmerized. Readers will feel as though they share her journey as she describes the doctors' visits, the chemotherapy, an autologous stem cell transplant, her fears, her victories, and her coping methods. Just like my neighbor who is fighting lung cancer, she preferred scarves to wigs when she lost her hair. The intimate details of her experiences will make the hearts of readers respond to her emotionally and respect her for never giving up. That is the theme of this book: Never Give Up!

The remaining sections of this beautifully illustrated and designed book-with a layout including colored tabs-make it easy for readers to have instant access to any of the planning information that is needed at the time. Only someone who has taken this journey could have put together such all-inclusive information within the 210 bound pages. Whether needing a record of one's medical history or entry space for a "to do" list, important travel data, vital contacts, etc., a copy of The Healing Journey should accompany the patient everywhere he or she goes. It will prove to be invaluable! There is also a photo pocket in front of the book and a prescription and business card pocket in the back for added convenience. How often have most of you lost an important business card with a specialist's address and telephone number?

It is my privilege to give this book my highest recommendation. If you are on this same journey, the words written by this author will encourage you along the way.

Author of seven books, book reviewer, former publisher and radio talk show host.
