This is a book for those who have been newly diagnosed with cancer and are wondering what to do, for those dismayed and frightened with recurrence, and for those who are curious about alternative therapies or conventional treatment, or are wondering what the underlying message is for healing cancer. This book may comfort those who know they will die of cancer. My story unfolded like a blooming rose over ten years since my diagnosis.

I found that there are many layers to healing. Healing is an individual path, but I also see that there is definitely a common theme to healing cancer. I have seen many of my qigong students embrace this theme and heal cancer. I have seen several of my students laughing and in complete peace before they died which I also consider healing. I share my students’ stories to exemplify stages of healing.

Through my daily practice of qigong and meditation, I know when I am healthy and when I am weakening and how to regain my balance. I know beyond a doubt that cancer in my life is gone for good. I hope you enjoy reading this book as I share with you how my life-affirming decisions and how my experience of CHI-LEL Medical Qigong created my confidence in this truth today.

book Reviews

I read Cancer Gone! cover to cover and found it fascinating, educational and inspiring. What a journey!

Of great significance was what I learned about becoming my own best advocate in the medical world. Your courage to stand up for yourself, insist on understanding test results, and make your own decisions despite what every doctor or person around you was telling you was truly awe-inspiring. I immediately began doing the same thing, and to my amazement, discovered that reports of my medical tests over the last two years were incomplete and inconsistent.

Talk about eye opening! From my research, I learned that my original diagnosis could have been wrong—and doctors had wanted me to take some pretty drastic measures based on those results. So I have begun to give greater weight to the voice within me, listening carefully to experts’ advice, then taking my own counsel. Of great delight is the beginning of my own CHI-LEL practice as a result of reading about your experiences. Having you as my teacher (via Skype) is fantastic, and the practice is filling me with hope and confidence about my ability to heal.

I have told others about your book and will continue to do so.

Thank you, Ginny! You are a beacon of light in this world.

After work these days I nestle down with a cup of tea and your book. What a story! I take in so much of what you share in this really well written book, but most of all the difference in the feeling of yin and yang, in your journey with cancer and in all our lives... The mind/yang and the gut/yin and so much more. I am a few pages away from finishing your book. The biggest challenge with finishing it is that I read your inspiring carpe diem words and I run out the door to live life fully and breathe and seize the day.  Literally...  It is SO inspiring that I read a few pages and light up and want to put on music and dance and be fully alive. It is amazing and I have loved journeying with you through your life and your adventure with the challenge of cancer.  Wow.  Just wow. And a quick thought...I will say that the guardians, both as a reality and as sculptures are extremely powerful.
The fact that those faces came out of rough charcoal strokes...amazing.
Thank you for writing this book!

 I thought the book was excellent and I was struck by the great discomfort you suffered. You are right about psychological attitudes- anger and despair that I saw in patients when I was in nurse's training and in my father who had lung cancer after my parent's divorce.
I couldn't put your book down. I will read this one over and over. It's a winner!

This book is a must for anyone who questions the AMA and their never ending invasive tests and mistakes, especially when it comes to cancer. Ginny's experiences and finally her discovery of CHI-LEL Medical Qigong is the ultimate message of how peace within ourselves affects the exterior world. This self-healing art of facing our traumas and fears works. It is a great journey based on empirical experience and commitment to live a quality life of creativity and love for ourselves and others. Her example of reaching out, looking for a solution and her faith to live and love is the wisdom for both those who have dis-ease or for those who do not.

I enjoyed every minute of your book.
I found it honest, touching and I liked how it exposed the whole medical system around cancer.
I felt uplifted by the parts about our spirituality.
I think it is a fantastic read!
