5.0 out of 5 stars The Biggest Battle of Her Life 12 Nov 2011
By Kathy W
Format:Perfect Paperback
The biggest battle of Ruth Levine's life was her battle with Stage 4 colorectal cancer. Her totally unexpected, punch-me-in-the-gut diagnosis reached her just as she completed intensive change-in-career studies as an Occupational Therapist (OT). Imagine her surprise when she had to face a barrage of tests and treatment that just kept going.

In this 150-page book from 2011, Ruth tells you her detailed story of her battle with cancer, but the warrior in her would not relinquish control of her body. She welcomed chemotherapy, viewing it as a positive force, and visualized it slashing the cancer cells whenever it entered her body. She bravely fought each obstacle as she was confronted with it and forged on to victory.

This is a book about perseverance, courage, and a strong positive mental attitude. Ruth wisely tapped into the support of friends and family to enhance her courage. Instead of giving up, Ruth used exercise, Reiki, prayer, and God to stay away from the "victim" mentality and to tune into her body's natural healing defense system.

In 1973, my mother passed away from her colon-cancer battle, so I can imagine only a small part of what Ruth endured. Cancer treatment is more advanced now, but as you will see, Ruth still went to Hades and back. She gave it everything she had, where many others would likely have given up. This is one amazing lady!

As a Reiki Master, I am happy to see that Ruth found the peace and love in Reiki during the time she needed it most - or, did Reiki find Ruth? ". . . It occurred to me that Reiki, meditation, and prayer were all related, in that they were ways for us to communicate with and feel the presence of G-d. . ." - - soooo very eloquently said.

5.0 out of 5 stars Cancer Warrior 19 Oct 2011
By Tami Brady TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Perfect Paperback
I very much believe that there's a reason for everything. Sometimes, especially during the really tough challenges that life seems to throw at us, it's just so very hard to see the hidden gift. In retrospect, perhaps these experiences provide the greatest gifts because they are so very hard fought.

Ruth Levine is the Cancer Warrior. She's an extraordinary woman in so many ways. In 2006, she was diagnosed with stage four colorectal cancer. Facing chemotherapy, radiation, and major surgery, she made a pledge to herself that she would focus on healing. To that end, she built herself up physically, mentally, and spiritually to face come what may. Then, even in her darkest moments, she not only believed she would win the battle against cancer but she knew that the cancer was meant to make her a better occupational therapist.

Whether our life lesson comes in the form of cancer or something else that shakes us to our core, we need to stay strong and positive. This story is a wonderful example of that faith and courage. Be well Ruth.

5.0 out of 5 stars Help For the Hopeless 30 Aug 2012
By Rabid Reader - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Perfect Paperback
I was most impressed with Ruth Levine's story because she gave me hope where there usually is not much. A diagnosis such as her's is so often a death sentence, yet she found a way through her struggle and came through with such a positive outcome. As a fourteen-year breast cancer survivor, I always look for inspiration in my own journey as well as a moving story to pass on to others who are facing unbelievable odds. I thank you Ruth for your honesty, your courage to share even your most darkest of dark places, and your willingness to face each new day, each new setback, and each new piece of your puzzle with a deep conviction that you will use all to learn and grow and become a better person for it all.
5.0 out of 5 stars Mind, body, spirit equals recovery 17 Nov 2011

Ruth Levine wins the battle against cancer by harnessing her mind, body and spirit to beat cancer. While her book is a quick read, the pages pack a lot hope when describing how she won.

I highly recommend this as it teaches all that we should never give up.

It occurred to me that Reiki, meditation, and prayer were all related, in that they were ways for us to communicate with and feel the presence of G-d. . ." - - soooo very eloquently said. Folks who have not experienced Reiki cannot begin to understand this connection. (The quickie explanation is that Reiki is hands-on healing, an alternate healing modality done by moving energy through the body and attempting to clear energy blockages. Many Reiki practitioners call upon God to guide this energy through their client. Many clients report visuals and a profound sense of peace.)

This book is significantly detailed and may either help or scare a cancer patient, depending on the will of that particular patient. Keep in mind the individual personality before giving this book to an active patient. This book may be useful to those who work with a patient or who are friends or family of a patient, to help them understand and provide support.
5.0 out of 5 stars Inspiring story of a cancer survivor's commitment to recovery 9 Oct 2011
By Rhonda B - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Perfect Paperback|Verified Purchase
Ruth Levine is a stage 4 cancer survivor who tells the story of how she fought back against this insidious disease using knowledge, humor, faith, and a strong will to survive. Ruth tells the story of how, at 49 years old she just completed her master's degree in occupational therapy and was poised to start a career helping others when she was diagnosed with stage 4 colorectal cancer. Using all the tools at her disposal and a strong desire to work with the doctors to help herself, Ruth tells the story of how she fought back and survived despite the odds. A refreshing read that inspires others to understand how they can make a difference in their own treatment. Highly recommended!
