"I was diagnosed with breast cancer and immediately underwent a double mastectomy. Cancer appeared again a few months later in neighbouring tissues. I was uneasy about both radiation and chemother, however, under advisement of my specialists, I went through radiation (25 treatments in 5 weeks) and took Tamoxifen (chemotherapy) for two months. These treatments were never solving my number one priority: the cause of my cancer, and my cancer was still not gone.
After reading "The Purpose of Cancer", my cancer finally made sense to me.
signed up for Wheel of Life's One Day Workshop, and afterwards, I told Paul I would be interested in coming to the Overcome Cancer Residency.
The program was a revelation for me. Through life-coaching, self-exploration, meditation, a calm place to be, connection to nature, play and good fun, I felt revived. This place was an oasis of wholeness and goodness. Paul helped me see my life and the events in it that shaped me mentally and emotionally. I felt like a weight had been lifted off my chest. He also helped me believe that I was the only one that could make the required changes in my life to heal permanently, and he gave me specific direction for those changes.
When I went back home, I kept up with my meditation and used the strategies learned at Wheel of Life to deal with my emotional triggers. I feel empowered, happy, alive, and most of all, cancer-free. I realize now that my cancer helped me grow into a stronger, happier person and now I can be grateful for it. -Chantal
