Healing Journeys was a bit late publishing my story, Independence Day, but it appeared in their newsletter this month.  This is the follow-up story to what appeared in The Free Lance Star at my diagnosis of breast cancer in 1996.  Only my family, friends, and internet survivor friends knew the details of this story.

The address to get the story is http://www.healingjourneys.org/resources/healing-stories/independence-day/

Let me tell you a little about Healing Journeys.  It is a wonderful foundation which enriches the life of anyone with a cancer diagnosis, their friends, or their families.  They present these conferences 4 times a year all over the country with lectures, wonderful inspirational music, and fellowship and it is totally free of charge. 

CANCER AS A TURNING POINT FROM SURVIVING TO THRIVING™ is the name of the conferences.

The only expense is getting to the conference and staying in the hotel.  They even provide food at the breaks.  I attended a conference in Charlottesville in 2010, and it was so inspirational.  Many people work so very hard to pull off these wonderful conferences, website, and so much more, but Jan Adrian has been behind it all.  One person has made such a difference in literally thousands and thousands of lives.  Here is the link to the explanation of her foundation:  http://www.healingjourneys.org/about-us/ and here is their homepage:  http://www.healingjourneys.org

In the words of Dr. Lawrence LeShan of the Advisory Board:

The person exists on many levels….physical, psychological and spiritual….and none of these can be reduced to any other. To move successfully toward health, all must be treated.
