Her story of fear, spiritual healing, love and mind/body interventions is an outstanding plan for those in need.”

Book Description:

The Cancer Path is a memoir/self-help book about a woman who views cancer as spiritual path. Dr. Sherman describes it as her ‘Eat, Pray, Love’ of cancer experience.

It was a springboard to examine her body, mind, emotions and Spirit. This context made this challenging year of treatment an eternal gift.
