Tamara leads us through a meditation exercise that is proven to reduce anxiety and is also great for minimizing nausea. David and Tamara also share about their newest book “Live Calm With Cancer (and Beyond)”, which was written from both the patient and the caregiver’s perspective.

Peaceful, inspiring and passionate about helping people manage successfully through cancer, regardless of the outcome, Tamara and David are transforming the lives of cancer patients and caregivers around the world through their books, workshops and loving meditations app.
