  1. A fascinating article. I was diagnosed with ovarian cancer in 2021.

    I have been a meditator for three years.

    I am a BU graduate (1960) so was drawn to read about
    Ms Phillips’ work.

  2. I believe that my meditation practice has helped me cope with my ovarian diagnosis of a year ago. I am able to be realistic and most of the time quite calm. The daily meditation I feel sure has helped me to adjust to this new reality.
