In 2009, specialists predicted Heidi Bright, MDiv, would die within months from an aggressive end-stage cancer. Heidi discovered powerful ways to manage conventional treatment, love her body, embrace her emotions, play with imagery, deepen her spiritual consciousness, and accept support. After two grueling years, another tumor swelled next to her heart. Heidi knew she had to make a shattering decision, permanently altering her life. After another surgery, she was told to prepare for Hospice. Her next scan was clean. Now she combines her journalism and theological background with fresh insights each Thursday on her blog, www.heidibright.com/blog.
