In her official second edition of The Healing Shower, Eloise Laws dedicates her book to those suffering from cancer and other chronic and life-threatening illnesses, who seek a different path and find some positiveness in what is happening, both to them and those around them. Serious illness can affect not only the sufferer, both those close family members and friends too. Often people want to help but do not want to appear pushy, or perhaps think that the sufferer just wants time and space to be alone. Eloise Laws is a breast cancer survivor and the overwhelming love and support she received, when she was going through the toughest time of her life, inspired her to write this book. Simple things, live having a meal prepared or an errand run, can make a HUGE difference. The book explains exactly what a Healing Shower is, and how it can make such a tremendous difference to you in a time of uncertainty, while also helping those around you come to terms with it. It is an inspiring and uplifting read and one which will undoubtedly provide reassurance in a time of uncertainty.
