Husband writes about guided imagery for chemo at wife's request

21 Mar
A husband gets marching orders from his wife, who underwent chemotherapy for ovarian cancer, to write and tell us that guided imagery made all the difference in the world to her and to say thank you..
Dear HJ Staff,
My wife has asked me to write you and report for her that if it hadn’t been for guided imagery, she swears she could not have survived chemotherapy for ovarian cancer. She wants me to be sure to tell you that this is not an exaggeration, even though she knows that it sounds like one. She means exactly that she could not have survived chemotherapy without the guided imagery she was given on site by her nurse. I am also instructed to say thank you very much. I thank you for her and also for myself, because I am as grateful as she is.
