“It’s cancer.” The words devastated Heather Jose. As doctors warned about tough odds, Heather faced the challenge head on. She pulled together friends as caregivers, her own inner resources and the best in medical care. She also wrote letters to her daughter Sydney so the little girl would remember Mom, just in case. A hand-lettered sign, “Every day we are killing cancer,” traveled with the family on a long journey that ended in success. This is the story that is inspiring cancer thrivers nationwide.
Helping You to Thrive
When Heather first heard her diagnosis, she was an experienced occupational therapist and understood the long odds she faced with stage IV breast cancer. Now, in her memoir Every Day We Are Killing Cancer, Heather shows readers how she brought together friends and family as a caregiving network, and how she summoned her own inner resources for physical and spiritual health. The book also includes a Foreword by best-selling nutrition expert David Grotto, author of 101 Foods That Could Save Your Life. Plus, she welcomes readers to download a free copy of her “Healing Agreement,” a one-page pledge modeled on the commitments she knows are essential to well-being.
