Product description

Product Description

If you have had cancer, you’re probably familiar with the slow, creeping fear that it’s going to return.

This book will give you some simple strategies to deal with that fear and to get back your life.

Written by someone who has been there and done that, it's packed with activities anyone can learn in minutes which can transform your fear into something that actually helps you to live a more fulfilling life.

You'll also discover why most of the strategies for dealing with fear of recurrence don't work well or consistently for most people and you'll be introduced to a whole tool-kit of techniques that do.

It's primarily a clear and simple guide for cancer survivors, those living with cancer and the people that love them, but anyone dealing with anxiety, recurrent fear or worry will find these techniques useful.

If I could pay $5 to avert one hour of meaningless fear, would I spend it? "Of course!" I thought, and bought this book.
It turned out to be full of practical ideas that I can use straight away on myself and the fearful ones around me...thats everyone alive.
Holding hands with the fear-monster is a sweet image, and does it work?
Well, I tested it.
After reading the book I did a suitable amount of scary-monster hand-holding, then went though a list of scary phone calls, scary conversations, procrastinated tasks.
I'm unharmed, and the quality of my future is now better.
You don't need a life-threatening illness for this book to protect and nourish you.
As a bonus, dandelions will forever look more beautiful, after reading this book.

This book ticks all the boxes for handling the fear of recurrence that is part of all cancer patients' lives after diagnosis.
It is written clearly and cuts through all the fog that surrounds us when we feel overwhelmed.
As a breast cancer survivor, I think Free from Fear should be on everyone's Important Items list.
It is an exceptional read from someone who has been there, and understands.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant. Highly recommended. 6 June 2017
By Joy King - Published on Amazon.com

When I got to the end of this book I went straight back to the beginning and started again. There's so much wisdom here. As promised, the exercises are easy to learn and you can integrate them into your life in about ten to fifteen minutes a day. You wouldn't think that would be enough to make any difference, but speaking as someone that was totally crippled by my fear of recurrence I can promise you, this stuff really works! The advice on living a fulfilling life was particularly important to me and so was all of the information about sorting out my values and what really matters to me.

I've been through all kinds of therapy and workshops trying to get my life back after cancer. I wish I'd started with this book! I could have saved myself a lot of time, money and worry. I feel like the sun has come up and my life is my own again. Best of all, my family are noticing what a difference it has made. My husband is half way through it. Even though he's never had cancer he's finding the activities are really helping him to deal with all of his anxiety about my illness and his future. I don't think you need to have had cancer to find this book useful. I hope she writes a followup book for anyone dealing with trauma or anxiety. Brilliant. Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simple Exercises that Really Work to Relieve Fear 18 May 2017
By Kami Corban - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
If a cancer diagnosis feels like too much to bear, you'll find solid comfort here. The exercises are quick and easy to perform. Yet they are profound and will produce lasting results. McGowan's book is filled with wisdom that can only have come from one intimately familiar with the traumatizing effects of cancer diagnosis and treatment. I strongly urge you to buy this book. You'll be glad you did and will, like me, refer to it for years to come. This book is a rare find, and the author deserves praise.

5.0 out of 5 stars A very valuable resource for everyone, not only those that have had cancer. 21 May 2017
By Maryanne Losurdo - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
A very valuable resource for everyone, not only those that have had cancer. There is so much knowledge and information within this book for tools with working through freeing yourself from fear. I believe sometimes when we get caught in fear, there is fog, we don’t seem to acknowledge our own values and get lost in the mist. There is so much within this book that draws on many techniques for working through this and with a lovely sense of humour, it shows Meg McGowan has had the life experience to walk the talk. Thank you Meg McGowan.
