Perseverance, determination, drive, resolve, courage and grit. These are the characteristics of a true survivor. A cancer survivor looks death in the face. She either gets scared and her body succumbs, or she sets an intention to live and beats the cancer against all odds. Transformation: Creating an Exceptional Life in the Face of Cancer ($16.95), is about the latter. It’s about taking the reins of your life and proactively changing the course of your survival, from diagnosis, to treatment, to creating a new life after cancer. This book explores the passion for living that lies inside each of us. Take a moment to ask yourself, "What truly excites me in life?" Is it people, food, travel, work, sports or the arts? "What's stopping me from living the life I have always dreamed of?" Author, Gale O’Brien, reveals how she conquered emotional repression and the fear of dying to emerge with a new attitude toward food, health and fitness, relationships, time management, work and spirituality. This book is an honest, revealing, no holds barred description of Gale’s transformational journey to survival, and how she finally gave herself permission to start living life fully engaged.
