Abstract
"Dancing with Cancer focuses on the creation of a positive and proactive mindset with which to face the specific challenges and stages of cancer. It combines the author's own experience of using what she calls Thought Work (including creative self-expression, healing energy work and meditation) with conventional cancer treatment in order to connect her intentions for healing to the everyday reality of a diagnosis of incurable bone-marrow cancer. The book offers guidance and inspiration not only to cancer sufferers as they undergo the various stages of treatment but also to those supporting them, enabling them to understand better the experience of the cancer patient as well as the possibilities of mind?body empowerment" -- Publisher

Abstract
This program offers an intimate view of patients, families and professional caregivers when a cure for cancer is beyond reach. The program explores a variety of journeys at the end of life. Whether families draw on extensive or minimal support from siblings, stepparents and grandparents, they face choices that can lead to confusion and disagreement. Many other factors can increase the crushing burden at the end of a child's life, including a breakdown of communication within the medical team or between physicians, patients and parents; cultural barriers; and family stresses unrelated to cancer. Making decisions and living with them can be agonizing for everyone involved.
