This book is for patients, fighters, caretakers, survivors -- anyone and everyone who has been touched by cancer. Dr. Wendy Treynor expertly takes a difficult subject and turns it into touching and uplifting account -- and she bravely shares it with us. I can't imagine every reader wouldn't be changed by the end of this book. It's the perfect gift for someone who is fighting the fight.

An amazing easy read with simple truths. Anyone who has been on a journey with cancer will identify deeply with this author, but this book is not limited to just those with cancer. It is a tool to use in any situation where you are fighting to keep your head above water. I personally have not had cancer myself, but my husband died of cancer in 2009. I believe Dr. Wendy Treynor is a gift to anyone who is willing to take the time to read this book, as she is real, truthful and so inspiring, and her message of love in healing comes out in all aspects of her life. I am grateful I also have had the opportunity to work with Wendy in Les Brown's workshops on public speaking. . Deborah Kucera, public speaker, retired RN and

I not only enjoyed reading "The Gift of Cancer," but loved meeting Dr. Wendy Treynor as a guest on my LA Talk Radio
show, "On The Couch with Dr. Michelle." In her book, Wendy shares her journey of overcoming cancer, dealing with a
bullying workplace, losing her husband, and ending up mentally and physically healthy. She is the real deal and practices
what she teaches. Her insightful words inspire others who are experiencing despair, fear and and depression in a delightful
style with powerful psychological and scientific tools…….Dr. Michelle Cohen, Host of LA Talk Radio's, "On The Couch
with Dr.Michelle."

... I read it in one sitting -- very simple truths, yet very powerful. What an incredible journey of awakening. Even though I have not fought cancer I have had loved ones touched by it. And frankly this book is a must read for anyone struggling with challenges in their life -- you do not need to have cancer to get something out it.

I read Wendy's article in the Awareness Magazine about the effects of our social environment and it resonated so much in my life that I decided to call her and got a free book in exchange for an honest review of it.
I deal with people everyday and often talk about their personal lives. Most of people, including myself, are or were trapped in a certain social condition, trapped means complaining, unsatisfied with it. I wondered about the connection with the quality of life and illnesses. Most cannot see a way out. Wendy explains clearly and simply this connection and recommends solutions through illustrated and briefly described lessons, She studied and lived the process from an young age, and what she experienced is the basis for the book.
The center of her ideas is the Socialization Theory. One except : " When innocent, well meaning people are immersed in a toxic culture, people resolve their external conflict-emotional conflict- by conforming to these toxic social standards, and as a consequence of conforming, this toxicity permeates the group, and potentially, society, at large. According to the Socialization Theory, an identity shift effect occurs when the social rejection induces one to conform to standards contrary to one's conscience, but then as a result of conforming- betraying one's conscience- self rejection arises, so that, in essence one exchanges external conflict for internal conflict. "(pg.62).
I think it is a timely, amazingly helpful, and easy to understand book. I am giving to my wife to read now. I highly recommend it !!
