Publisher's Summary

The self-published sensation and UK best seller that has helped thousands touched by cancer.
"I have cancer. Cancer does not have me."
Sophie Sabbage was 48 years old, happily married, and mother to a four-year-old daughter when she was diagnosed with late-stage lung cancer. Since that shocking diagnosis, she has been on a remarkable journey of healing and renewal that has reshaped her life - for the better.
The Cancer Whisperer chronicles Sophie's extraordinary relationship with cancer and the very effective methods she has used for dealing with her fear, anger, denial, and grief. The Brené Brown of cancer, Sophie empowers listeners to reject the traditional adversarial relationship with cancer by teaching us how to listen to it; how to be healed by it as well as how to seek to cure it; and how to be emotionally free even when we are physically curtailed.
Beautifully and poignantly written, The Cancer Whisperer encourages cancer patients to:

Direct their own treatment while preserving their personhood in a system that tends to see them as patients more than people.
Engage with fear, anger, and grief in healthy and healing ways instead of toughing it out, trying to be falsely positive, or collapsing into despair.
Radically shift from being a cancer victim to a cancer listener - fostering an understanding of cancer as a symptom of other underlying causes and engaging with whatever changes it calls on them to make.

As authentic as it is revolutionary, The Cancer Whisperer calls for an end to "the war on cancer" and the start of a more transformative dialogue with the disease.

Transformative and not your expected "Cancer" book

Weather or not you have cancer this book is exceptional. Sophie helped my sister through her cancer diagnosis and I recommend this to anyone going through s life shock. I also think this should be required reading for all oncologist and people in the medical field. Keeping your personhood and navigating the medical system of today is so important. I think Chapter 8 on grief is worth the $20 some dollars and a million more! This was my chapter, the description of Sophie's experience with the horses was poetic. Her writing is sooo beautiful and her insights on grief priceless "Grief connects. When we grieve well, it opens rather than closes the heart. This is why it heals. Grief picks you up from the depths of your despair and frees you to love forward again..."
