Buddy's Candle: For Those Who Have Lost a Loved One
In Dr. Bernie Siegel's new book, Buddy's Candle, a father
shares a meaningful story from his childhood with his nine year old son. In a
gentle way, the father describes how a loving dog named Buddy not only helped
him to heal when facing a serious illness, but also changed his life in
miraculous ways. Buddy's Candle is a touching and heartwarming story. In its
gentle way, it helps us to deal with grief and teaches us how to live life fully
and accept loss and death with an open heart. The original and charming
illustrations by Mari Gayatri Stein take us on a joy filled adventure. These
full spectrum color drawings add humor, and a heartfelt exuberance.
As a surgeon who has worked with people with life threatening illnesses for many
years, Dr. Bernie Siegel shares in this story his belief that there is a light
in each of us by God's/Dog's design. And, that we are all a part of the candle
parade of light. As long as we remember to love, our candles will glow with life
as will Buddy's candle across the Rainbow Bridge. This is a story both children
and adults will find healing, uplifting, and inspiring.

Faith, Hope and Healing: Inspiring Lessons Learned from People Living with Cancer
(April 6, 2009) by Bernie Siegel and Jennifer Sander
In his monumental bestseller, Love, Medicine, and
Miracles, Dr. Bernie Siegel broke new ground by revealing the powerful
role the mind can play in fighting illness. His dramatic stories of
seriously ill patients whose sheer will, determination, and love helped them
survive against the odds inspired countless readers to consider the
possibility of participating in their own healing. This new companion volume
to Dr. Siegel's timeless classic takes the journey further.
Faith, Hope, and Healing presents the remarkable stories of what
happened to patients who followed Dr. Siegel's advice. You'll meet
courageous women and men who have not only been cured of cancer, but have
also found deeper faith, hope, joy, and healing by coming to terms with
their own mortality.
Grouped into sections on faith, hope, and healing, these first-person
accounts and Siegel's insightful commentaries encourage and help you to
develop a survivor's attitude and personality traits. They also offer proven
strategies for getting through difficult times and discovering the
gifts-true gifts-that illness can bring into your life.
Among the survivors who tell their stories here, you'll find a woman who
discovered on the same day that she had lost her battle for the custody of
her three sons and that her breast cancer had returned. In the midst of
utter catastrophe and defeat, with no hope in sight, she discovered a love
of life she had never known before. You'll also meet the woman who asked,
"Why me?" when she was diagnosed with cancer, and was surprised when a
little voice inside her answered, "Why not?" And, a successful veterinarian
reveals how his throat cancer taught him things about pets that he had never
learned in school.
All of the stories in this deeply supportive collection help you discover
what Dr. Siegel calls the "side effects" of cancer: the wake-up call that
urges you to begin your life anew, a heightened understanding of what really
matters to you and what doesn't, and the courage to take control of your own
healing process as you work with caregivers to cure your illness.
For more than twenty years, Dr. Siegel has been educating cancer patients on
the importance of the spiritual life in facing and recovering from cancer.
In Faith, Hope, and Healing, he helps you learn from the experiences of
others how to recognize the disease as a wake-up call that leads you to seek
nourishment for yourself and your life, start building a more authentic and
fulfilling today, and keep it going for many years to come.
