What people have said about
Taking Charge of Fighting Cancer
and the accompanying audio
visual imagery CD,
"This is what the doctors should be
giving every patient the first day you walk into their office.
I’m taking this with me to chemo.
I wake up in the morning and
sometimes I’m in sheer panic and I can’t bring myself to get out of
bed. I put the CD on softly and listen to it mindlessly without
actually doing the visualization, I just listen.
When I was first diagnosed, handing
me the CD was the first real ammunition to say I can fight back, I
have a plan, and I can win.
It’s a powerful tool for me. It’s
self-empowering. The CD empowers you." - Naomi, cancer survivor

newly diagnosed breast cancer patients. As a breast cancer survivor
myself, I wish I had something comforting and relaxing, such as this,

Barbara Bloom, Ph.D., Psychologist
Since being diagnosed with breast
cancer a year ago, I have read and reviewed hundreds of manuals and
books about cancer care. I have never encountered anything that comes
close to Carter’s workbook, Taking Charge of
Fighting Cancer. …. One feels as though they have put
themselves into the hands of a most compassionate guiding heart who
leads you through a difficult journey to peace and

Administration Black Hills Healthcare System
The diagnosis of cancer is a very
stressful time both for the patient and his loved ones. When this
happened to me, I needed the succor and support that the CD was able
to give to me in facing the impending surgery and treatment. It gave
me the peace and courage to be able to face it in the right frame of
mind which I am convinced was a significant factor in my having been
able to deal with the problem and open new and exciting doors to my
life which I never suspected were there.
Peter, cancer survivor
"I was really feeling low until I
listened to the tape. I started doing exactly what it was saying and I
started feeling the tingling in my toes. I kept telling myself I can
do this and my body can do this. Even my doctor said that I had
improved remarkably and he couldn't understand how I had made so much
