Complementary therapies saved my life, says author Carole OToole. In 1994, OToole was diagnosed with extremely aggressive inflammatory breast cancer and given 18 months to live. Thats when OToole began her seven years of intensive research on complementary techniques, which continue to support her physically, emotionally, and spiritually to this day. As a professional cancer coach, OToole co-created Finding My Way, one of the nations leading advisory services for women with breast cancer. She speaks to cancer survivors and health professionals about integrative treatments throughout the country.
Ms. O'Toole teaches us that we must trust our selves and our abilities in this process. For when we do, we make the best possible decisions for our lives. This book is a wonderful guide for those facing treatment as well as their loved ones.
What I especially appreciate is the author's emphasis on trusting your own intuition---and backing that up with succinct, well-organized information to facilitate rational decision-making in support of one's intuition. This book isn't just another nice book about a cancer experience; it's a well thought out resource to think through and make decisions on developing your complementary health care. Thank you, Carole O'Toole!
