giuded imagery & chemotherapy

BR gets a note from a retired distributor who reports on the positive effects of guided imagery on a young breast cancer patient undergoing chemotherapy, all the way over in Finland..
From Lucinda:

Cheerio, Deario,

Well, I might not be an active distributor but have steered many grateful people to your work, my friend. I got the cancer tapes (and surgery ones, too) for my precious friend in NYC and they set the stage for relatively easy time w/ chemo and radiation. Then, a young friend''s best friend in Finland--a mother of two--is coping with breast cancer. She was feeling helpless when I told her there was something major she could do for her friend and, thus your chemo CD found its way to Finland via yours truly in North Carolina. Wanted to share this segment of an email from the young woman in Finland...my friend shared it with me.

The CD was great, I was feeling a bit lousy and listened to it straight away. I''m telling you, it felt like magic. I was crying listening to it but it felt great. I had these wonderful sensations all over my body. I''m going to listen to it every day! So THANK YOU!!!

Love,
Lucinda
