Louise Hay was part of my wellness team. I listened to her affirmations and read her books while I went through cancer treatment. I believe that in order to become healthy, you must include all aspects of you: body, mind and spirit. Louise taught me how to focus on my mind and spirit. I still follow her advice.

Since I had rectal cancer at the time, it was quite appropriate. I believe my sense of humor got me through the toughest time of my life.
