The self-published phenomenon that has helped thousands of people - updated with a new chapter.

'I have cancer. Cancer does not have me.'

Sophie Sabbage was diagnosed with late stage 'incurable' lung cancer in October 2014. She was 48 years old, happily married with a 4-year-old daughter. Since that day - when doctors told Sophie that her prognosis was poor - she has been on a remarkable journey of healing and transformation that has reshaped her vocation as well as changed her life for the better.

The Cancer Whisperer chronicles Sophie's extraordinary relationship with cancer and the methods that she has used for dealing with fear, anger, denial and grief. The essence of 'cancer whispering' was born of Sophie's determination to take cancer off the battlefield and into the classroom. Instead of going to war with it, Sophie has chosen to listen to it, learn from it and choose her own response to it.

Sophie offers a radically different way of relating to this disease both mentally and practically: she shares the research she has done, the treatments she has chosen, the diet she follows and the resources that she feels have made the biggest differences in the hope that they will help others cut through the mass of information out there.

Sophie says: 'This book is for the cancer patient who wants to remain a dignified, empowered human being even when your doctors and diagnosis are scaring the hell out of you. It is also for the cancer patient who has a hunch that there is something for them to learn, gain or even be transformed by - if they just knew how to relate to this disease differently to the way most of society does. It is for the cancer patient, perhaps any patient.'

Industry Reviews

There are only a handful of books that I recommend. Sophie Sabbage's book, The Cancer Whisperer, just rose to the top of my list. It will guide you through self-discovery and empower you to create a healing milieu in your body, mind and spirit. - Daniel Kennedy Contreras, MC, Pyscho-Oncology Counsellor and Executive Director, Oasis of Hope Hospital

Sophie Sabbage is a force. The effortless beauty of her writing insinuates her powerful messages deep within the reader, and I found myself brought to tears with regularity. There is enough poetry, passion and purpose compressed into this small volume to propel you to reconsider every aspect of your life in the most fundamental way. Whilst aimed fairly and squarely at those with cancer, The Cancer Whisperer is also a 'must read' for family and friends who seek to understand the 'inside experience of cancer and the ways which they can be a genuine support and help. - Robin Daly, Founder of the Yes To Life UK cancer charity

A beautiful love letter to cancer. . .one of the most moving and powerful books I have ever read...Genuinely amazing. - Tim Dingle BSc (Hons) MIBiol PGCE MBA Mediator, author, comedian and founder of Be Amazing Every Day

If you are one of us who have or has had cancer please read Sophie's book. Hear the whisper that carries her wisdom that will enable you to let cancer heal your life. - Linda Brown, Chiropractor and breast cancer patient

Written with great intensity and economy, it is like a great book of poetry - an intimate companion in a time of fear, when clear-eyed, well-informed, uncompromising friendship is most appreciated. - Professor William Torbert, creator and author of Action Inquiry: The Secret of Timely and Transforming Leadership.

I'm bowled over by Sophie's book. This is wisdom from a huge, generous heart and formidable intelligence. Profound, passionate, lucid, Sophie presents a new way of responding to cancer by attuning, going deeper, getting on purpose, making clear decisions about action and treatment...The Cancer Whisperer is a brilliant and inspiring guide, in fact, for all of us when we feel defeated by body, mind, illness or challenging life events. - Rosie Jackson, Author, B.A. D.Phil., creative writing teacher

Sophie, thank you for your implausible gorgeousness and generosity. I am sitting here blurry eyed with a snotty nose and red eyes after reading your. . . what? Story, book, life? I feel alive now...My soul gives great thanks to you for breaking my heart tonight. - Jason Harrison, Life Coach and Transformational Facilitator
