Summary
This book is a story of extraordinary courage, strength, and deep spirituality. The author's journey began the moment she opened her eyes in a post-op ward after a "routine" biopsy to determine the pathology of the lump on her neck and was told that she had cancer. Given three months to live because of stage IV throat and neck cancer (August 2005), to singing the National Anthem before a Red Sox game at Fenway Park in Boston (July 2007), to riding her bicycle eighty-five miles in one day to raise money for children's cancer research with the Pan Mass Challenge (August 2007) , all in less than two years, is proof that the unexpected can be achieved. She approached cancer differently than most people do. She chose not to "battle" cancer; she chose to embrace it and allow it to become her teacher and her sage. She named cancer "PIN", short for pain in the neck, and entered into a dialogue with PIN and gave it permission to teach her the lessons she needed to learn. The lessons were rich and enlightening. She learned something deeply critical to healing: self-love. When we love ourselves, we do not want to battle anything. When we love ourselves, we allow our vibration to attract life at a higher frequency: a frequency that promotes healing on all levels, emotionally, mentally, physically, and spiritually. . She learned that self-love is the all-time greatest healer. -- From publisher
