Welcome to The Healing Journal: Taking Control of Your Journey Through Cancer. My name is Lynda Peterson. I am an educator, trained professional organizer & the author of this unique tool to help you manage your cancer journey. My favourite saying is "With organization comes empowerment", and as a two-time cancer survivor I can attest to it's truth even when faced with a cancer diagnosis.
I invite you to browse the pages of this website for information, tips, ideas and resources to help you live your best life, during and after cancer.
The fear that chokes you and envelops your body; the feelings of
sadness; guilt and dread, and the moments of panic and confusion, can
all be controlled, reduced and in most cases even replaced when you get
organized, take charge, hold your head high and summon the courage and
strength that is deep in your soul.
I was first diagnosed in 2006 with Follicular Lymphama, an incurable
form of Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma, then again in 2009 with Diffuse Large B
Cell Lymphoma. Lots of Chemo and a bone marrow transplant and today I'm
healthy and cancer free!
I know how you feel and I understand your fears. Having a place to keep
track of the details and organize your thoughts will free your mind to
concentrate on healing.
It was written specifically for cancer patients and their caregivers. It begins with the story of one survivor’s journey through the diagnosis and treatment, complete with the thoughts and raw emotions of a woman fighting to both come to terms with and learning to embrace life with cancer.
It enables patients and caregivers to keep track of all the details that will suddenly become important in their lives:
Important contact information
Chemo & radiation treatments
Family medical histories
Travel arrangements, and more.
It also includes strategies for taking control of those parts of the healing process that do not involve medical science such as:
Additionally, The Healing Journal: Taking Control of Your Journey Through Cancer includes space for patients to reflect as they move forward in their own journey through this disease. It is appropriate for all types of cancers and both men and women. Patients and caregivers who use this journal will find it to be an invaluable tool in their journey through cancer.
Makes a wonderful & thoughtful gift for any
family facing a cancer journey.

"Honestly Lynda, I don’t know where to begin.
I just finished your book and I am speechless. I read it cover to cover (first time I’ve ever read epilogues or acknowledgements!). You have made me ashamed of the way I have been coping with my illness – you’ve done what I thought I would do and didn’t. But now I think you’ve given me the courage to live without feeling pity for myself. Your book is not just for cancer patients – it is for all people facing terminal diseases. I have already started using some of your pages for medical history; my list of specialists; appointments; travel arrangements and medications. You have helped me organize the details.
I know now that what I did when I looked after my brother after his operation was helpful. I always thought I could have done more. Thank you for sharing personal thoughts and feelings. It helps caregivers understand."

"Thank you for the journal. It’s a beautiful book. I have yet to see a journal so nice to look at and to touch, while still having all the necessary parts to make it practical and useful.
I read your ‘story’, I want to say that I am sorry for all you’ve had to endure. You helped me to understand how truly difficult the cancer journey is, you also helped me to understand how a person can find resilience and strength because it is a story filled with hope and determination."
