Do you want to take control of restoring your well-being and quality of life after cancer treatment? Would you like to feel more confident in helping someone you love through a cancer diagnosis, treatment, and beyond? Do you want to make the thought of a cancer diagnosis less traumatic and terrifying?
Navigating the C provides the insight, knowledge, and skills everyone needs to prepare for a cancer diagnosis affecting someone close to them. The book walks you through the steps to improve your cancer literacy so you can communicate your needs in the healthcare system, and find your way back from cancer to being yourself, and the potential for emerging better than ever.
“Alene helped with my immediate health needs in union with my physical, spiritual and emotional issues. Her approach is a unique blend of inspiration and compassion, combining her expertise as a oncology nurse, in the workings of the human body, as a coach and healer, enabled me to embark through a personal transformation after cancer. I am deeply grateful for the way you shared your passion and purpose.”
