Synopsis

'I have cancer. Cancer does not have me.'



Sophie Sabbage was diagnosed with late stage 'incurable' lung cancer in October 2014. She was 48 years old, happily married with a 4-year-old daughter. Since that day - when doctors told Sophie that her prognosis was poor - she has been on a remarkable journey of healing and transformation that has reshaped her vocation as well as changed her life for the better.



The Cancer Whisperer chronicles Sophie's extraordinary relationship with cancer and the methods that she has used for dealing with fear, anger, denial and grief. The essence of 'cancer whispering' was born of Sophie's determination to take cancer off the battlefield and into the classroom. Instead of going to war with it, Sophie has chosen to listen to it, learn from it and choose her own response to it.



Sophie offers a radically different way of relating to this disease both mentally and practically: she shares the research she has done, the treatments she has chosen, the diet she follows and the resources that she feels have made the biggest differences in the hope that they will help others cut through the mass of information out there.



Sophie says: 'This book is for the cancer patient who wants to remain a dignified, empowered human being even when your doctors and diagnosis are scaring the hell out of you. It is also for the cancer patient who has a hunch that there is something for them to learn, gain or even be transformed by - if they just knew how to relate to this disease differently to the way most of society does. It is for the cancer patient, perhaps any patient.'

Sophie Sabbage is an author, speaker, facilitator and patient activist. She has worked in the field of human development and esoteric psychology since 1994, both as a senior trainer with the More To Life educational charity and as the leader of her own business consultancy for twenty years. She has been teaching people to learn from their lifeshocks in diverse contexts for most of her adult life. Following an incurable cancer diagnosis in 2014, Sophie became a passionate patient activist, helping cancer patients around the world to navigate the emotional challenges of the disease and to take charge of their own treatment. Sophie's academic background is primarily in English Literature, having fallen in love with books at an early age. She is an agent of change who measures leadership not by how many followers someone has, but by how many other leaders they create. She is happily married to John Sabbage and is the proud mother of their daughter, Gabriella.
