‘This book inspires other cancer patients to reflect before submitting themselves to the usual treatments which have only the destruction of the tumour as the goal.’

Dr. Waltraut Fryda. Cancer Specialist Germany

‘Janet Edwards’s account of her journey through cancer stands as a testimony to doggedness, optimism and the unbounded power of the human spirit.’

Garner Thomson, Neuro-Linguistic Programming ™ Meta-Master Practitioner and Trainer, Training Director of The Society of Medical NLP™

“This is a bold and brave piece of work. The weaving together of personal experience, an exploration of the science and the discussion of cancer as a system disorder are indeed unique, and all in a language that can be easily understood. It should be read by every woman who has ever had any concerns about breast cancer…… enlightening read for both men and women.”
