"Sophie Sabbage was forty-eight 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 readers 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."--

I came by this book to help guide me during my mom's cancer treatment, but cancer doesn't have to be in your life for this book to be relevant. Sophie Sabbage uses her cancer journey to show that even in the face of cancer there are choices. But Sabbage's insight isn't exclusively for those with cancer, and while I've learned a lot on how to help and respect my mother through her journey, I am also on my own journey through life and I need to make my own decisions. As Sabbage says, we are all terminal, but hopefully cancer isn't the catalyst to make you value your own time.
