  • Choosing Cancer as a Blesson: For Self, Family, Friends, and Patients. Tanya Abreu

In this one-hour workshop for life, Tanya Abreu shares that she was given less than a year to live, 13 lucky years ago. Because of that time and the ensuing loss of her company, career, and family, Tanya celebrates cancer as a "blesson" even as she still survives "other people's cancer" with friends and family and, sadly, sometimes, helps others to die with it. Cancer is the body's best warning signal, a billboard that commands every cell of attention to heal. Cancer reveals the inner-workings of the human soul and, according to Tanya, is the ultimate exercise in self-love and abiding health.
