    The Path of Wellness and Healing Breast Cancer DVD

    By Whitney Casser

    In addition to all of the wonderful
    pink products
    available this month (some of which we’ve recently featured
    in Joy
    of Shopping
    ), here is a really great resource for families grappling with
    breast cancer. Breast Cancer: The Path of Wellness
    & Healing
    is an informative and uplifting DVD
    that educates and supports women with breast cancer, along with their friends,
    family and loved ones. —

    In this two-part series, medical experts and cancer
    survivors give in-depth interviews on their personal and professional
    experiences. Some of the country’s most notable physicians and wellness
    specialists provide insights into risk, detection, diagnosis and treatment,
    while cancer survivors and activists lend their own testimonials. Contributors
    include Christina Applegate, Rosanna Arquette, Dr. Deepak Chopra, Sheryl Crow,
    Melissa Etheridge, Dr. Harvey Karp, Dr. Soram Khalsa, Dr. Susan Love, Olivia
    Newton-John, Dr. Marisa Weiss and more.

    Created by two-time breast cancer
    survivor Joyce Ostin and bestselling DVD
    director/producer Nina Montée Karp, the Breast Cancer DVDs
    combine wisdom from traditional and complementary medicine along with
    practical advice for navigating the day-to-day struggles.
    From how to create the best medical team to help your cause,
    to talking about breast cancer with your children, this DVD
    set is an invaluable tool for managing the physical, emotional and
    psychological aspects of living with cancer. 

    Considering about 1 in every 8 women is diagnosed with
    invasive breast cancer at some time in their lives, the importance of such a resource
    as this cannot be overstated. Watch the DVDs for your mothers, your sisters,
    your aunts and your friends. But, most importantly, watch it for yourself.

    Take care.
