Joan of Arc, the fourteenth-century teenager who led the armies of France before facing the Inquisition, stands as the quintessential icon of feminine courage and faith. These are the attributes most needed by women facing a diagnosis of cancer or any life-threatening disease.
Drawing directly from the words Joan spoke at her trial, author Janet Lynn Roseman presents thirty-one Flames of Courage and thirty-one Gateways to be used over the course of a month or a year to resurrect inner fortitude and create an environment for healing. Her approach encompasses body, mind, and spirit and will help you access and reclaim your personal power to find healing and peace in your journey.
Instead of discovering on your own how to survive
when confronted by a life-threatening illness,
why not learn from those who have preceded us
and made the wisdom of survivor behavior available to us all?
Janet Lynn Roseman’s book shares that wisdom,
which I know from experience,
and speaks the truth.
Survivors’ stories, and the wisdom of the sages, all have common themes.
Read Janet’s and Joan of Arc’s wisdom
and let it guide you on your journey through life.

As an advocate working in the cancer world after my own diagnosis,
which, happily, was twenty years ago,
I know very well how important the mind-body connection can be.
I yearned for happy, healthy role models
when I was dealing with the disease.
In that moment,
a book like If Joan of Arc Had Cancer
would have been a wondrous gift to me.
Sadly millions of us each year will hear the words
‘You have cancer.’
This book will make that journey so much easier.

There is a vitality, a life force, an energy,
a quickening that is translated through you into action,
and because there is only one of you in all of time,
this expression is unique.
And if you block it,
it will never exist through any other medium and it will be lost.
It is your business to keep it yours clearly and directly,
to keep the channel open.
— Martha Graham
