“What you are about to read has been proven to increase love of life when heard and make people significantly happier.

This life-changing book, with 120+ color illustrations, 15+ journal entries, and 193 inspiring, life lessons, is in a class of its own.

Wendy warns: “Read it at your own risk.  You want to be happy?  Then follow me!” as she communicates a little-known secret—a universal cause of human suffering and its cure—that offers breakthrough understanding to help you heal yourself and our world.

 “Wendy Treynor had endured a lifetime of rejection. Why were some people so mean? What could be done about it? Going to graduate school to find out, she launched a quest to heal herself and others, but it later fell apart.  Soon after earning her Ph.D., Treynor suddenly lost her career, money, health insurance and identity.  She was so miserable she dreamed of getting cancer so she could make an easy exist from this world.

   But everything changed when her wish for cancer came true.  The disease sent Treynor on a journey of self-discovery, providing her with an enlightened understanding of the problem, its solution, and what it means to be happy.  Weaving scholarship and story, this powerful book is more than just a compelling read. The Gift of Cancer is a transformational tool for anyone who want to live a happier and more fulfilling life.”
