As a Wellness Practitior, Alma Lightbody helped Erin Higgins cope with her fatal ovarian cancer, a silent killer that often goes undetected until it is too late for effective treatment. The pair co-wrote My Wonderfull Nightmare (Trafford 2010), a story that opens with Higgins' cancer diagnosis at age thirty-one. Her subsequent journal entries are reprinted to empower readers to become more responsible for their own health. “We’ve never been taught to listen to our body," she writes, "and it’s tragic.”
The purpose of this book is to encourage others to listen to "our body messages" before it is too late. My Wonderfull Nightmare recounts an inspiring but sad journey of illness, unconditional love and spirituality.
