    Erica Chats with Author, Breast Cancer Survivor, and Fellow Coach, Jenn McRobbie

    in Health

    Please join Health Educator & Life Coach, Erica Haray-Butcher, as she chats with Author, Breast Cancer Survivor, fellow Life Coach, and former attorney, Jenn McRobbie.


    Jenn and Erica will be talking about Jenn's journey through breast cancer, as well as her brand new book- Why is She Acting So Weird?  A Guide to Cultivating Closeness When a Friend is in Crisis.  


    Jenn was a very happily married mother of two beautiful young girls when she was diagnosed with stage 3A breast cancer that had already spread to her lymph nodes.  There was no history of breast cancer in her family, making this even more suprising.  She underwent multiple surgeries, chemo, and radiation, and through her health jouirney, she decided it was finally time to live, love, and be free.  


    In her book, Jenn shares her experience of how friendships change when a friend goes through a crisis, and offers tips to people who want to be supportive of a loved one, but aren't sure what to do or what to say.

    Best selling author and cancer specialist, Bernie Siegel, says you can heal!

    in Spirituality

    In the words of Bernie Siegel, he says, 


     If I were involved in the case of the young woman the court has ordered to have chemotherapy it wouldn't be so big a problem.


    The mind is very powerful and what it visualizes the body believes but there is also an intuitive unconscious wisdom which may not agree with what she thinks and feels. Dreams and drawings can reveal this inner wisdom and knowledge. I would ask her to draw a picture, with crayons, of herself receiving chemotherapy. 


         Some people who do not want chemotherapy draw it as golden energy flowing to their cancer. It is right for them but their fears and the doctor's frightening words about side effects are the problem. Others who choose it wonder why they are not doing well. Their drawing of chemo is the devil giving them poison. No wonder they have a problem and this holds for drawings of surgery, radiation and eating vegetables as your treatment.


         I know of many cases where due to medical errors patients did not receive the radiation, surgery or chemotherapy they thought they were receiving but the doctors didn't realize it until routine inspections were made because all the patients were reacting as if they were being treated with tumors shrinking and side effects. Doctors words are hypnotic and words can become swordswords which kill or cure.


         You change your image by visualizing what you desire and I created CDs for people entitled Getting Ready so they could prepare themselves and their bodies by seeing everything going beautifully after treatment. Their dreams, drawings and response to treatment all improve and they can eliminate side effects.


       


    Peace,


    Bernie Siegel, MD

    Susan Hall-I Laugh in the Face of Cancer Live with Scott Cluthe

    in Books

    Susan Liberty Hall’s Ha, I Laugh in the Face of Cancer Champions the Astonishing Native American Herbal Remedy that Cured Her of Breast Cancer.During the Same Time, Her Famous Brother, Jerry Buss, Owner of the Los Angeles Lakers,  Fought Cancer with Tools of Traditional Medicine


    Susan Liberty Hall heard it all. The biopsy, the mastectomy, the chemo, the radiation. It’s what the doctors insisted she do when they found the three lumps in her breast. Yet she had seen how her mother had suffered in the last year of life, following doctor’s directives after being diagnosed with colon cancer. Susan had been her caregiver until the end.But instead Susan asked for guidance. And on that one day in meditation, she was guided to open a file in her desk where she had stored information on holistic treatments for cancer during her mother’s decline.


     


    And there it was, an ancient Native American remedy still produced today by one family called “Two Feathers Healing Formula.” Eschewing aggressive and angry reproaches from her doctors, Susan started the regimen. And within weeks, watched as 18—not three—cancerous lumps literally begin to expunge from an open wound in her breast, tumors that she still actually has in specimen jars.

  • Erica & Adam on Making Every Day Count

    in Health

    Please join Health Educator & Life Coach, Erica Haray-Butcher, as she talks with Adam, a St. Jude Leukemia patient.  Adam is inviting you to make "every day count" through acts of kindness and compassion.


    Adam was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (A.L.L.) July 29, 2014 at St Jude Children's Research Hospital.  After an incredible summer of travelling, college visits, and preparing for his junior year of high school, he began to experience pain in his hands. Concerned about possible arthritis, family friend, Dr. Hugh Holt ran some basic blood tests. No one would have imagined Hugh would tell Adam, this easy going, healthy, all around nice guy, that he had cancer. Life will never be the same for Adam, his family, or his friends.


    St. Jude's A.L.L. treatment requires daily or weekly chemo treatment for 2 and 1/2 years (until Jan. 2017) followed by annual checkups for 7 more years (until 2024) before they can declare Adam cured.  Adam decided to call his support community, "Adam's Army" because he believes together he will be healed and along the way the Army can help heal the world. 


    Please join Erica and Adam as they talk about his health journey, the lessons he's learned, and his mission of making every day count.  Trust me, you don't want to miss this conversation.  It will be full of hope and inspiration to us all.


    To learn more about Erica, please go to www.CatchGoodHealth.com.  To learn more about Adam, please go to the Adam's Army FaceBook fanpage.

    Stephen Dixon, Caregiver To His Late Wife, Talks About Surviving Grief & Loss

    in Caregiving

    Join Dave Nassaney, The Caregiver's Caregiver, and his guest, Stephen Dixon, Caregiver to his late wife of 33 years, Brenda, who died of stage 4 breast cancer just 8 months ago. Steve is very strong in his faith, and this has helped him to go through the grief process quicker than most who have suffered such a loss. In his words, "I remember clearly being strong to communicate the seriousness of Brenda's condition with our semi adult children and then two days later crying to God as I drove home from a concert because I did not want to lose my Brenda! We enjoyed many good days along with some not so good days as she underwent first radiation and hormone therapy, then chemo therapy to deal with the disease. Fast forward to one year ago this fall - September, 2013 and I received quite a shock when I was let go from my work of 32 years simply due to "re-organizing", but in the providence of God I was then able to stay home with my bride for the last six months of her life. Brenda died on March 11, 2014 at Holy Cross hospital.


    During those last six months I enjoyed three months of life with her as husband and friend, and then became caregiver husband for the last three months of her life.  God gave me great grace to deal with my great loss as I went and stayed with her every day at the hospital, and then was her sole caregiver for three days at home and then closing out her time on earth the last 6 days at the hospital. These were difficult days - but we were encouraged by God's word - by the prayers of many, many Christians and by flowers, cards, and visits of our close friends.


    Dave Nassaney is the author of numerous articles and books, speaker, life coach, and radio talk-show host for caregivers who are burned out, but his most important role is being a caregiver to his lovely wife, Charlene. His latest book that he is now working on is entitled: The Caregiver's Caregiver, Avoiding Burnout.
