You Can Dare to Blossom - Even Through Cancer


Mary Lunnen is a life coach and an author of four books . She lives on the coast of North Cornwall, in the far south west of the U.K.

In 1994, she was diagnosed with cervical cancer.  When she asked her doctor if she could talk with someone else who had been through this, the doctor said she was not able to help her. This started Mary on a journey of writing her no-holds-barred stories of her journey through cancer.

Sharing her experiences has become her passion in helping other people cope with their own situations.

Prepare to be SHOCKED! Hope - Her Only Thread to Survival



CeeCee James has written a series of memoirs that you will never be able to forget.  Absolutely. Guaranteed.

During her interview, I was at a loss for words. I have heard many stories of abuse but I never heard one as intense as CeeCee's.  She is an incredibly gentle, warm woman who survived horrendous pain, neglect and hatred by her mother.

Listening to her story, you will be drawn to tears and anger as you hear CeeCee share how the only touch she had ever known as a child was one of pain.

At TWO WEEKS old, her father burned CeeCee's face and body with an iron. Her mother refused to feed or change CeeCee's diapers because she did not want to be manipulated by a baby's cries.  She wanted to teach her NOT to cry.  This was only the beginning of a lifetime of trauma.

CeeCee never remembers a time as a child when she was not hungry....or cold.....or alone.....or hated.

Yet, all CeeCee ever wanted was love. Even as a toddler she worked hard to please her mother, hoping for one gentle touch or one kind word.  She never got one! 
EVER!

Courtney received the news about her four-month-old baby brother when she was 19 and in college. She dropped out of college to be with him and her family -- and to learn to love him, despite his death sentence.

There was nowhere for Courtney to turn for help as there was no resource to help people who had to cope with losing a sibling, to a disease or death. Feeling like she was up against the impossible, while also feeling
