Our Journey with Prostate Cancer: Empowering Strategies for Patients and Families by Judith Anne Desjardins LCSW BCD MSWAC is a useful book that serves as a guided meditation to all those battling prostate cancer. The book provides spiritual and medical insights and also the entire process of recovery to spiritual development in patients. The author's experience of handling her husband's prostate cancer and their emotional and psychological journey together while going through the treatment is very inspirational. Her insights into the dynamics of cancer, treatment and healing are comforting to readers who are around those going through this or the patients themselves.
The journal entries of the author have a lot of informative facts and also guide readers. The book is definitely helpful to all those who are going through this difficult phase in their lives. The meditations and tips for checking on one's spiritual and physical health are also very useful. The recommendations for cancer patients and their families who are experiencing anxiety and panic attacks are encouraging and supportive. Dealing with cancer can be stressful and tiring, and the book encourages those who are going through this traumatic phase to tap into the power of prayer. I liked the holistic approach to handling the disease which reiterates the power of hope, love and healing. The insights into physical, mental, emotional and spiritual well being are not only powerful but also comforting.
