Abstract
Discusses coming to terms with the disease itself; managing pain; planning funerals; making peace with loved ones; deciding about terminal care; and learning what the final experience of death is like. Although the author argues the pros and cons of euthanasia and belief in an afterlife, her obvious bias in favour of both may be off-putting to some readers.

What if you could use cancer to evolve more fully into love? David Maginley has been there --- four times. His cancer led to a near-death experience and a career helping thousands face this disease. Through profound storytelling, David brings you to the core of the cancer journey to discover the hero within. You will learn how to :
-- Turn the mind into an ally as you grapple with uncertainty.
-- Explore spirituality through your love rather than your belief.
-- Not only go through cancer, but grow through cancer. - Cover
