Talking about surviving cancer
BREAST cancer survivor and author Anna Derham will be the special guest speaker at the Zonta Club of the Whitsundays breakfast meeting at the Coffee Club on Tuesday, October 8.
Ms Derham was diagnosed with breast cancer requiring aggressive chemotherapy treatment in 2004.
She decided against invasive treatment to embark on a journey of self-discovery and transformative techniques, and has now been free of cancer for the past nine years.
Ms Derham recently published a book Go home and grow tomatoes which follows her extraordinary story of breast cancer survival.
“Through modelling Brandon Bay’s successful experience of self-healing, from a football sized tumour in six weeks without drugs or surgery, inspired me to take control of my own wellness journey after surgery,” she said.
“I experienced her deeply transformative techniques to change my life and fight the return of my breast cancer.”
Modelling the structure of excellence through the Silva mind body healing program, she learned that scientific evidence points to stress as being responsible for 90 per cent of all health experiences.
“This structure of excellence was to know that our beliefs govern our living experiences and that we can change those beliefs anytime we want to,” Ms Derham said.
Zonta vice president Roz Jennings said the breakfast session was open to all members of the community and would be an inspirational way to start the day.
