To enter into the heart of another human being is a great gift but to offer this gift to unknown travelers is an act of great courage. Dr. Robin Dilley has written her story and placed it on the altar as an offering for the sake of others. We pilgrims consume these pages and are strengthened for life's journey. Inspired by her raw honesty and relentless integrity, we are challenged to choose life and to live it fully
A gift to women, either learning or fear of facing Cancer. Also a gift to men as their loved ones are faced with this ordeal. It is clearly documented of the physical challenges plus the personal emotions that need to be dealt with. This is a good read, I couldn't put it down. Highly recommend.
I purchased your book for Judie for her birthday. She could not wait until the kids all went home so she could start reading it (we were at the cabin). She did not come home until she finished it. I had my chance to read it this weekend. I admire your courage and approach to your cancer. I am sure anyone who reads the book will find great information. I will recommend it to any of my associates or friends who may be facing a serious illness. Your words would have been great encouragement for me when I was facing cancer treatment, because sometimes I did just give in to treatment I really did not want to have. What fascinated me the most was your description of your vision quest. To set out alone to get back in touch with yourself was of great interest to me. Thank you for writing the book."
Dr Dilley's honest exploration of her journey through cancer treatment offers the reader guidance, hope and reassurance that whatever ones experience of that which terrifies them, a way can be found. She personifies grace and strength: the cornerstones of coping."
The impact of a cancer diagnosis on one's emotional world is dramatic. In a Moment's Notice emotional life is changed forever. A life in complete control is turned into a series of semi-helpless, shaming interactions laced with fear. We are all deeply indebted to Dr. Robin Dilley for summoning the courage to share her story and expose her inmost self and emotions to us. I was moved, inspired and enlightened as I followed her depiction of the roiling emotions engendered by her struggle with breast cancer. I give her book to all my patients who have the misfortune to receive a cancer diagnosis. Because of her openness, her knowledge of human emotional systems and her inspirational words, the dreadful isolation of a journey through cancer is lessened for them. Her powerful presentation at our 2010 Maximizing Emotional Connections conference in Fort Worth Texas entitled "Care of Self - Care of Others" filled us with positive emotion, made us feel more at one with ourselves and drew closer to one another. Bravo! Dr. Dilley, and thank you
