Journey Unknown, Second Edition
Focusing on the Emotional Aspects of Cancer, Mastectomy, and Chemotherapy
In 1987, at the age of 46, Margaret Phalor Barnhart was diagnosed with breast cancer. She underwent a modified radical mastectomy, followed by six months of chemotherapy. To help ease the emotional and psychological burden of the disease and its treatment, she penned poems and sketched artwork. Journey Unknown is a chronological compilation of these inspirational pieces.
From shock, anger, and denial through depression and, finally, acceptance, Ms. Barnhart’s story is powerful and touching and sure to be an inspiration to other cancer patients. Journey Unknown can be read in its entirety in a few hours. However, the poems and artwork will certainly inspire countless hours of reflection, and new insights can be found with each reading.
An excellent resource for cancer patients, their families, and their friends. Actually, anyone who is coping with the pain and reality of any type of loss will want to read this book. It will also be of help to: nurses and doctors, pastors and chaplains, hospice staff and volunteers, social workers.
This book is also available in Kindle and iPad versions.
