Radical Remission: Surviving Cancer Against All Odds

By: Kelly Turner, Ph.D


Discover the nine keys that can unlock your pathway to dramatic healing.


Kelly Turner, Ph.D., a researcher and psychotherapist who specializes in integrative oncology, gives the reader the results of her research on over a thousand cases of Radical Remission—people who have defied a serious or even terminal cancer diagnosis with a complete reversal of the disease. The results of this study, which focused on seventy-five factors, include astounding insights of the nine key factors that Dr. Turner found among nearly every Radical Remission survivor she has studied and an explanation of how the reader can put these practices to work in his or her own life.


Every chapter of Radical Remission includes dramatic stories of survivors' journeys back to wellness. The realization that the possibilities for healing are more abundant than we had previously known gives people concrete ways to defy the overwhelming prognosis of terminal cancer. This is a book for those who are in the midst of receiving conventional cancer treatment, who are looking for other options because that treatment has done all that it can, or who seemingly have no options left but still feel that the future holds the possibility of hope.


Kelly Turner's Radical Remission shows that it is possible to triumph over cancer, even in situations that seem hopeless. Encompassing diet, stress, emotions, spirituality, and other factors that profoundly affect our health and well-being, Turner's discussion of how our choices can cause the seemingly miraculous to happen will open your eyes to what is possible when it comes to lasting healing.

By: Jack Canfield, Mark Victor Hansen, and Mary Olsen Kelly


Along with the shock, fear and loss many women face upon a breast cancer diagnosis comes unexpected strength, wisdom and strong networks. In Chicken Soup for the Breast Cancer Survivor's Soul, survivors and their family members talk openly about their difficult fight with breast cancer and how they made it through the dark times with a belief in a higher power and the support of those closest to them.


Find strength in the encouraging stories of how loved ones confront their fears and show genuine affection for one another through gestures, such s a granddaughter cutting the hair off of all her dolls sot that they look more like her grandma, who is bald from chemotherapy the gentle touch of a three-year-old son on his mother's back, giving comfort to his sick mommy; and a husband who shows his wife the depth of his love during a weekend getaway after she heals from a mastectomy.

Dr Susan Love's Breast Book

By: Dusan Love M.D.  


Back Cover:

Dr. Susan Love’s Breast Book has long been the bible for the newly diagnosed. In this completely revised fifth edition, it also becomes a guide for those at risk of getting breast cancer, survivors interested in the consequences of their treatment, and anyone who wants to understand the new research about how the local environment influences the manifestations and treatments of many different kinds of breast cancer. Major advances being made in genetic research today mean that prevention and treatment can work not only to get rid of mutated cells (through chemo or surgery), but also to change the environment around the cells (through hormone therapy, exercise, and stress reduction). Among other promising developments discussed are advances in imaging, recognition of breast density as a risk factor, and a section focused on “personalized medicine” to help determine what kind of cancer you have and how best to treat it.


Any woman facing a diagnosis, decisions about treatment, or concerns about prevention will find in Dr. Love’s book the information, guidance, and reassurance she needs.

Breast Cancer Husband - How to help your wife (and yourself) through diagnosis, treatment, and beyond

By: Marc Silver


Our Review:

My husband picked up this book shortly after my diagnosis. It was a wonderful recourse for him and a guide for how he could support me through it all. This book really walked through all the aspects of dealing with a diagnosis and how to navigate through our relationship beyond cancer. He later pulled it out again in an effort to help me deal with a particularly difficult time when I was feeling pretty low and he had no idea how to pull me out of it. This book helps husbands and partners to get a feel for what their wife or partner is going through and how to support them during the tough time.  - Erin

Our Review:

Kris Carr is a passionate diva, whose energy and positive outlook on life are empowering. This book contains her personal experience and how she deals with cancer every day. She shares tips and encouragement for others who are going through a cancer diagnosis. My favorite chapter was Bald is Beautiful. I fully embraced losing my hair and only wore a wig twice. It was one less thing I needed to worry about or deal with on top of everything else. – Erin
