“Dr. Freedman speaks from experience, both as a cancer survivor himself, and the father of a Radical Remission cancer survivor. His book, Healing with 7 Principles of MindfulnessÂ gives readers a nurturing, helping hand throughout the entire cancer journey, especially with regard to developing a meditation practice.”Â
-Kelly Turner, PhD, Author of the NYTimes Bestseller Radical Remission: Surviving Cancer Against All Odds
“Jerome is not a medical doctor, but a doctor of computer science he’s a very smart man. He’s also an ordained practitioner in a Buddhist tradition and a compassionate listener and observer of the human condition. He has helped many friends and acquaintances navigate their way through cancer diagnosis, treatment, and often, recovery.”
-Martin Rossman, MD, from the foreword, author of The Worry Solution and Fighting Cancer from Within
I am a cancer survivor, so what I have to share comes from personal experience. Cancer is like enlightenment at gunpoint. One must face it and do something. The Seven Principles of MindfulnessÂ that Jerome Freedman has so clearly outlined (see page 129) provides us with realistic and practical modalities that give us strength to face the challenges of cancer and hope to survive. This is a must read book for anyone facing cancer or their caretaker.
