Pender Island, British Columbia (PRWEB) January 11, 2013
Erin Higgins was diagnosed with ovarian cancer at only 31 years old. During the next two and a half years, as she battled the disease that would ultimately claim her life, she kept journals and worked with holistic health practitioner Alma Lightbody. After her death, Lightbody followed Higgins’ wishes and compiled the journals into the new memoir “My Wonderful Nightmare: Spiritual Journals Inspired by Cancer” (published by Trafford Publishing).
In this book readers will discover with Higgins her shocking cancer diagnosis, and face with her the questions this diagnosis engenders about her very existence. Readers will see Higgins’ arguments with herself about her spirituality and her life.
An excerpt from “My Wonderful Nightmare”:
“We’ve never been taught to listen to our body and it’s tragic. I somehow knew the results of the surgery before they told me. If I had been more in tune with my body I would have known earlier. I hadn’t paid attention and didn’t know how.”
“There is a lot to learn about life and death and everything in between,” Lightbody says. “Many people never reach the depth of inner understanding that Erin shares as she faces the beast head-on.”
