''Karen's experience with complementary therapies may help women find ways to deal with the stresses and anxieties of a cancer diagnosis and treatment.''--Mary Gallenberg, MD, American Board-certified obstetrician and gynecologist, and American-certified in internal medicine and oncology
''This is a story of illness, faith, and courage. You will get tears in your eyes when you learn Ingalls has cancer. You will root for her during treatment and aftercare. You will cheer when you learn she is cancer-free. Engagingly written, this book isn't just for those who have cancer... it is for all who face life's challenges, quell their fears, and learn to live each day to the fullest.'' ----Harriet Hodgson, author of The Spiritual Woman: Quotes to Refresh and Sustain Your Soul and 101 Affirmations to Ease Your Grief Journey: Words of Comfort, Words of Hope
From the Author
The Outshine book is an outgrowth of the journaling I did from the time of my initial visit with my gynecologist to the point of entering remission after major surgery, many tests, doctor's appointments, and chemotherapy.

This is a very well written book full of compassion, love and understanding. The author wrote from the heart and with a strong belief in the healing power of God. If the author survived cancer, it must have been due to those positive actions and dispositions she adopted all through her trial. This is a great book of hope and trust in God for those who find themselves under the scourge of Cancer, a book of love and encouragement, a great read indeed.
We seem to shy away from talking about Ovarian Cancer. As a two-time Ovarian Cancer survivor myself, I know just how true that can be. It's called the silent killer, but it's as if somewhere along the line that came to mean we should stay silent. Thankfully, Karen Ingalls did not stay silent. In this beautiful, touching memoir, she shares with us her reality. And as she does, we realize that we stay silent because silence is easy. What the author has done is not easy, but it makes a difference, and I for one am extremely grateful that she shared her journey with us.
