Dear Jan,

I just want to thank you for the life and attitude changing experience. You and your program have made dealing with cancer better than it was. I feel like I still have a life, and there are still many things I can learn, and most important I feel like I can help others in a small way.

I was diagnosed with inflammatory breast cancer in January of 2001. I did the chemo, radiation and the surgery. All of which drained my energy and changed my attitude. In June of 2006 my cancer came back in my bones and my liver. This meant more chemo. When I learned this I was very discouraged. I wondered if I could do it again.

Then you called and asked me to take part in The Awareness Option program. I was nervous at the first but after the first table session my attitude seemed to change. I felt light and at ease for the first time since June. I felt calm and like everything would be okay. It was wonderful.

The second and third sessions along with the workshop changed my attitude about lots of things. I learned how to deal with stress, depression and loss of energy. I learned how to help my body help me handle low blood counts. I learned more about my inner feeling and how to deal with life. At my last session I didn’t want it to end.

I have more peace of mind and energy. I feel like I’m dealing with life in a new and exciting way. The exercises have given me the energy I’ve needed so I can continue to work.

The Awareness Option Project has opened my mind and made me a much better person. I am more understanding of others. I have more patience. I feel like I can deal with life in a much better way.

Thank you for changing my life for the better!

Love you forever,

Joan Feil
