“Doc, how much time do I have?” “Probably three to six months,” he replied.
That was 12 years ago.
Lifelines to Cancer Survival, by Mark Roby is a dramatic, personal adventure about someone who was told 12 years ago that he had just a few months to live, and that there was nothing that anyone could do to prevent the cancer from worsening, much less cure it. Even in the face of dire predictions, Mark faced some of his toughest challenges with unlimited hope, love, and enthusiasm for life. As Mark started to see his own identity beyond the limitations of a physical body, as a spiritual being, much of his fear dissolved. He also began to change his belief system into one where he believed that nothing was impossible. He chose not to be a victim or to complain. He learned he could be peaceful and happy, regardless of what was happening to his body.
Healing is the letting go of fear.
