Reader Praise for Surviving Cancerland: Intuitive Aspects of Healing

“Kat is one of the pioneering precognitive dreamers from the Breast Cancer Warning Dreams Research Project. Her amazing stories of dream guides appearing in magical pop-up windows with wise advice for her healing journey can inspire us all to find the guidance that we need during challenging times in our own lives.”

– Larry Burk, MD, CEHP

Author of Let Magic Happen: Adventures in Healing with a Holistic Radiologist


“Kathleen O’Keefe-Kanavos has written a beautiful book describing how important it was for her to listen to her spirit guides and deeply honor her own sense of what her body needed as she moved through the journey of breast cancer diagnosis and treatment. For those about to experience chemotherapy and radiation, Kathleen’s humorous and insightful account will help prepare them emotionally, mentally, and spiritually. For people facing cancer, and for their friends and loved ones, this book will inspire and elevate the spirit to better cope with the unknown.”

Author of On Hope and Healing: For Those Who Have Fallen Through the Medical Cracks


“I see people who have cancer and are going through or have just finished treatment all the time because I often do their reconstructive surgery, but I never knew the detail of the everyday life of a patient. As a physician, you don’t know what it is to undergo treatment or how important it is for people to share the details of this experience because the scope of it is not understood. Even movies do not contain the detail that is written in this book because it would be impossible to get it all into the allotted time limitations of film. That is one of the things that makes Surviving Cancerland: Intuitive Aspects of Healing so incredible. It is a wonderful account that can be used as a reference book, and it is an education for both doctors and people that is positive, not depressing, in its factual account.”

– Dr. Helen S. Colen, MD FACS, PC

Department of Surgery, NYU Medical Center, NY


“Your book is incredibly engaging and sure to inspire many women to trust their instincts. There is such a need for a book like this. You have really turned a stumbling block into a stepping stone (lemons into lemonade). Way to go!” (SIC)

Author of The Holistic Pediatrician


“A must read for everyone gravely challenged by the cancer experience or who has a loved one suffering from cancer. Kathy’s vivid description of her experience from diagnosis through treatment, the aftereffects, and her survival may help and give hope to us all. We experience through Kathy the combined medicines and healing modalities of conventional chemotherapy and radiation and the integrative medicines of Larry Dossey, MD, and Andrew Weil, MD; the mind-body healing of Dennis Gersten, MD, and Judith Orloff, MD; and the psychic-spiritual healing of Raymond Moody, MD, Bernie Siegel, MD, and Edgar Cayce, referred to as the “Father of Holistic Medicine” by the Journal of Medical Association.”

Dr. Ursula Martens

Author and Director of Psychical Research and Development Foundation


“Armed with an incisive wit, Ms. Kanavos puts forward her experience as a cancer survivor. Drawing on scientific literature and reviews, she tackles the intellectual aspect of the medical world from the perspective of her personal intuition as a patient. She presents the amazing power of the inner soul and the importance of trusting intuition when facing cancer’s diagnosis and treatment. Ms. Kanavos emphatically steps outside of the traditional box to set out her persuasive and passionate case for combining medical and spiritual when working with illness. While you may not always agree with her opinions, I am certain you will find the book laced with amazing pros and cons for trusting the God-given gift of intuition. Believing that knowledge is power, I intend to translate Ms. Kanavos’ book into Farsi to give access to many other women outside of the U.S. Knowledge of her journey can inspire all cancer survivors to empower and educate themselves as they travel along their personal paths.”

“What a great idea for breast cancer patients and families. A day to day description on everything from medications, treatments, how your body is affected but most important, mental and physical help notes. For someone just diagnosed, this book is a God send- it gives you an actual insight on what to expect day by day, to let you know you are not alone, tells you all sorts of self help relief and also how to apply them. I would recommend this to anyone that has to hear those most devastating words- You have breast cancer!”

Surviving Cancerland: Intuitive Aspects of Healing is a unique perspective on cancer. As a cancer patient currently undergoing treatment for an aggressive form of breast cancer, I have had to censor much of the breast cancer literature and books that have come my way. I found many to be full of frightening statistics and hopeless stories. Ms. Kanavos has written a book with intention and a purpose to allay those fears. Although it deals with the reality and seriousness of cancer, there are many aspects to consider from a spiritual and treatment modality. The key is to listen to what your body is telling you (intuitively) even if you are told something different by the medical community. I found this book to be empowering, positive, and filled with hope and alternatives. I dog- eared several sections that spoke to me. They drew me back and re- enforced my agreement with these powerful words. I highly recommend this book to any woman going through breast cancer.”

– Nancy Curtin Shea, RN

Triple-negative breast-cancer patient undergoing treatment


Surviving Cancerland: Intuitive Aspects of Healing is a real and revealing account of a woman’s struggle through her healing battle with cancer. The book is riveting and witty. Even in the darkest moments, Kathleen manages to find humor and power to advocate for herself, using both her spiritual guides and medical science. Chronicling a person’s successful journey to the other side of cancer, this is a great primer for people dealing with this devastating disease.”

– Suzanne Strisower, MA, PPC, author, coach, and radio show host


“I constantly speak with people who are in the middle of a health crisis. I’ve heard the stories of those who relied on traditional diagnosis and the stories of those who listened to an internal voice that stated something was amiss. I experienced a knowing from this dialogue. When I listen to this voice, I reap the benefits. When I ignore it, I reap the repercussions. Kathleen’s book is a great resource for anyone experiencing this voice or knowing and as a personal story of someone who is living this gift.”

— Karen Mayfield, Msc.CC., author, speaker, founder of Wake Up Women
