Abstract
What if you could use cancer to evolve more fully into love? David Maginley has been there --- four times. His cancer led to a near-death experience and a career helping thousands face this disease. Through profound storytelling, David brings you to the core of the cancer journey to discover the hero within. You will learn how to :
-- Turn the mind into an ally as you grapple with uncertainty.
-- Explore spirituality through your love rather than your belief.
-- Not only go through cancer, but grow through cancer. - Cover
