Inspiring Lessons Learned from People Living with Cancer

""Bernie Siegel is one of the greatest healers of our time. The stories he shares in Faith, Hope, and Healing demonstrate the healing effect of treating cancer not just with conventional medicine but by changing the way you think about your disease, the way you act toward those who love and care for you, and the way you feel about yourself. The mind is the most powerful tool you have for fighting back.""

-Deepak Chopra, author of Jesus: A Story of Enlightenment

display_description In his monumental bestseller, Love, Medicine, and Miracles, Dr. Bernie Siegel broke new ground by revealing the powerful role the mind can play in fighting illness. His dramatic stories of seriously ill patients whose sheer will, determination, and love helped them survive against the odds inspired countless listeners to consider the possibility of participating in their own healing. This new companion audio to Dr. Siegel's timeless classic takes the journey further. Faith, Hope and Healing presents remarkable stories of what happened to patients who followed Dr. Siegel's advice. You'll meet courageous women and men who have not only been cured of cancer, but have also found deeper faith, hope, joy, and healing by coming to terms with their own mortality. Grouped into sections on faith, hope, and healing, these first person accounts and Siegel's insightful commentaries encourage and help you to develop a survivor's attitude and personality traits. They also offer proven strategies for getting through difficult times and discovering the gifts - true gifts - that illness can bring into your life. Among the survivors who tell their stories here, you'll find a woman who discovered on the same day that she had lost her battle for the custody of her three sons and that her breast cancer had returned. In the midst of utter catastrophe and defeat, with no how in sight, she discovered a love of life she had never known before. You'll also meet the woman who asked, "Why me?" when she was diagnosed with cancer, and was surprised when a little voice inside her answered, "Why not?" And, a successful veterinarian reveals how his throat cancer taught him things about pets that he never learned in school. All of the stories in this deeply supportive collection help you discover what Dr. Siegel calls the "side effects" of cancer: the wake-up call that urges you to begin your life anew, a heightened understanding of what really matters to you and what doesn't, and the courage to take control of your own healing process as you work with caregivers to cure your illness. For more than 20 years, Dr. Siegel has been educating cancer patients on the importance of the spiritual life in facing and recovering from cancer. In Faith, Hope and Healing, he helps you learn from the experiences of others how to recognize the disease as a wake-up call that leads you to seek nourishment for yourself and your life, start building a more authentic and fulfilling today, and keep it going for many years to come.
