how do you find hope...
...while dealing with the challenges of cancer treatments or their aftereffects? Healing Hope offers original aphorisms to help you find and nourish hope that helps you get good care and live as fully as possible every day.

Now a long-time cancer survivor who has far outlived her prognosis, Wendy shares her hard-won insights about illness and healing in this ground-breaking book on hope. The succinct explanations and meaningful illustrations accompanying her powerful aphorisms make this book incredibly accessible.
