  9. Evening with the Author: Deb Nelson presents "Finding Health After Cancer: Stories of Renewal and Healing"

    April 23, 2019, 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM @ Whiton Room

    "Finding Health After Cancer" shares stories of people finding their path to health following a cancer diagnosis. Each person featured in this book faced a life-challenging and life-changing moment in his or her own way. Each of these cancer conquerors was forced to make a variety of decisions as they navigated their path to health. Priorities shifted without warning as they learned their diagnosis. They began asking questions, listening to friends and family members, tuning in to their intuition, and researching options. Treatment varied from person to person: some people followed a conventional treatment plan, while others turned to complementary and alternative treatment. The people you’ll meet in this book found a way to steer clear of a downward spiral when they were handed a cancer diagnosis. They looked at their options, decided which treatment suited their particular situation, and forged ahead. They also became advocates for themselves and other cancer patients.
