Cancer patient is grateful for Chemotherapy CD provided by nurse
A nurse gave her a free CD of guided imagery for chemotherapy at the start of her treatments. I believe it was produced by Glaxo 1. This gave her back her equanimity, plus. She became peaceful in a way she had not been since the death of my father. She listened faithfully and it changed her whole attitude.
Now, three years later, she is doing great. She has since gotten other guided imagery CDs and uses them as her daily meditation to ensure she stays well. She has not only maintained her positive attitude, she continues to improve and enjoy life. My sisters and I are delighted.
She asked me to email you all and tell you thank you. Being an obedient son, I am doing just that. Thank you.
1 This is our guided imagery for chemotherapy, produced and distributed free by GlaxoSmithkline since 1993. We gratefully acknowledge them for taking the lead on this at a time when guided imagery was a fairly unknown quantity. They have given out over 350,000 chemotherapy audios to people who otherwise may never have benefited from the technique.
