  • Angela Northall on How to Prepare for Brain SurgeryWishing you the best outcome, Sophie. My daughter had a fourteen hour brain surgery and the waiting was difficult to cope with. I would suggest that John asks whether the surgeon will phone him once the operation is completed. My daughter's surgeon phoned at 11 45 pm. If this is not the hospital's policy find out how the hospital will update him. Prayers, positive thoughts for you.
  • Lori on How to Prepare for Brain SurgeryThinking of you, stay strong, be well
  • Steven Walton on How to Prepare for Brain SurgerySophie is empowered. There are many who are not and need to be supported. Please send your thoughts and healing energy to those less fortunate then Sophie who too live with cancer. The poor who are unable to afford the quality foods that would help. The friendless. Those whose medical treatment is standard and routine and who lack the voice to take a stand for themselves.
  • micha on How to Prepare for Brain SurgeryYes, to all you write: let fear enter and let it go. I was operated from a rare cancer and I know the statistics are not with me. But we are not numbers, the best we can do is to leave behind us a trail of love. A friend has just died of terminal cancer and the whole town went to her funeral to say thank you. She was love. If we do that we survive no matter what. Thank you for what you are doing.
  • Sue Adams on How to Prepare for Brain SurgeryMy cancer diagnosis coincided exactly the same time as yours did so October 2014 I too began my journey of befriending this condition and tanks to your wonderful and inspiring emotional rhetoric I have been sustained.

  • Yve Schelhaas on How to Prepare for Brain SurgeryYou have countless inspired and grateful souls always walking beside you Sophie, sending all the love and help you have given us in our darkest of times right back at you.

  • Maggie Baldwin on How to Prepare for Brain SurgeryGut-churningly, bowel-emptyingly awful:no one should have to face this:no one would wish to be in your admittedly beautiful, silver trainers. The hopes and prayers of each one of us will be centred on you tomorrow, because "Ask not for whom the bell tolls...it tolls for me". Oh God, Sophie...

But you go the extra mile and I so wish you all the best for a smooth operation and peaceful recovery. My love to you as always xxx
  • Kathy Rinehart on How to Prepare for Brain SurgeryHi Sophie, I found your blog in April of 2016 when my mom was diagnosed with Stage 4 Lung Cancer. Through your blog, I found hope that carried me until she had a devastating reaction to Opdivo in Oct. She didn't recover and passed away on Dec. 26, 2016. As heartbroken as I am over her death, I pray hard that you come through your surgery with success and the gift of more hugs from your daughter

  • Tanya on Health Update | 25 Feb 2017Re 'liquid cells' . The meninges are not liquid, they are membranes. They are, however, lubricated so i guess this is what they are talking about. Cells running accross the surface in the cerebal spinal fluid (CSF) that lubricaes the meniges. Hope this helps Xxxxxxxxxxxxx

  • Sophie Sabbage on Health Update | 25 Feb 2017So you to ask this Jerome! My understanding is that the brain lining/meninges is liquid so when the cancer cells enter the lining they spread out. It looks like streaks on the scan instead of contained shapes with clear edges. This is what makes it hard to target. But I'm the patient. Please educate me if I have misunderstood this!

  • Steven Walton on Health Update | 25 Feb 2017I found your Update to be factual, unambiguous and honest. I don't see any sentimentality or unrealistic thinking. There is always Hope. I find you the "patient" at the cente are the one who supports others. I Give-A-Shit because I care for you and me. We benefit from your intelligence and education, your creativity as an author and your willingness to be open about your health and relationships.
  • Cousin Mary on Health Update | 25 Feb 2017Oh darling, darling Sophie. ALL our love is with you, surrounding you and holding you. xxx
  • Jerome burne on Health Update | 25 Feb 2017Such a horible blow for you and admire the way you respond withcharcteristic blend of apparently calm rationalism while being honest about the emotional impact. My rational side was intrigued and alarmed by your phrase 'liquid cancer'. That sound straight from a sci-fi horror movie. What does it mean.' How would a liquid cell continue to function. Don't bother to answer - just had to register it

  • Sheeb on Health Update | 25 Feb 2017You are inspirational Sophie. Keep up the good hope. I find by doing visualisations and working with the chakra system nearest where the cancer has manifested to be useful. I can work with the energy and feel the effects on my tumours. In my case anal cancer which corresponds to the base chakra, the colour red etc. I guess yours would be between the throat and crown chakras.My prayers are with you

  • Patricia Kitts on Talk | Video | Living a Thousand LivesMy husband was diagnosed with mesothelioma in Feb and we heard you on Woman's Hour shortly after, so we started on an alkaline diet after 50 years of cooking meat and two veg! But we've stuck to it and I believe the diet, his steady increase in exercise (ex Navy he has always been a fit man) and mindset have been the key to his improvement. Your interview and book have been an Inspiration.
  • Sophie Sabbage on Talk | Video | Cancer Is Not an EnemyThe train ride was fate my dear! I felt an instant connection with you. We will meet for sure. A kindred spirit in Kent. Boom!

You are my inspiration, Ulrike
  • Jo O'Farrell on Talk | Video | Cancer: Beyond SurvivingThanks for inspiring video clip, Sophie! I wrote this a year or two ago, it's in my "Here is a beginning" book of poems: The saddest thing I might have passed without knowing over the cancer-curved horizon ignorant of who I am that would have been the saddest thing within this damaged shell open to life, love, loss grows something priceless that pearl is me
  • Ann Everett on Talk | Video | Living a Thousand LivesYou are the most inspirational person I have encountered on this journey. You have given me the strength to look beyond the word rare cancer & allowed me to have some self belief. I have today volunteered for a post, which if I'm successful, & if I can help someone feel less alone or isolated with this thing we call cancer then I have you to thank. Sending hugs. xx
  • Jeanne Andrus on Living a thousand livesAlways love hearing about you, John, and the ever-fabulous Miss G! Congratulations on the next book!

My mum had a lobectomy for lung cancer at the age of 82 and as with your dear dad, they got it all. xx
  • Mac Mclean on Dr Dana FlavinHaving met Dr Flavin, at a Cancer Convention in Leicester, I was blown away with her passion and desire to help cure patients from Cancer. I have stage 4 lung cancer, which has metastasised to my bones. Having been sent home by the NHS for palatine treatment I decided to get in touch with Dr Flavin. After my Skpe session with her my hopes were restored and I now look forward to a blessed recovery.
  • Suzanne on A Marathon, Not A SprintSophie, you are such an inspiration. May all the sharing you do with the world bring you many, many blessings in return for your health, peace and wellbeing. Wishing you continued courage and strength. Thank you!! xo
  • Kaye chambers on A Marathon, Not A SprintDearest Sophie Thank you for your clarity in sharing. My daughter Rose (now 16) is on a tough journey too, first panic attacks, then suicidal, now self harming. Her beauty, love & talent shine out at me, yet she sees only blackness, failure and no future. So we are both climbing different mountains,both accepting death & perhaps will see you when we both reach the top of a ridge. With much love
  • Judy Roy on A Marathon, Not A SprintYou are a brilliant woman, with a light to share for us all. Thank you for all you are giving to us and the gifts your messages hold. Sending you healing love and energy.
  • Paul McAweney on A Marathon, Not A SprintThank you Sophie, wonderful writing which stretches my mind and soul to its best places. I have great people in my life yet still curse if some slight strain prevents me playing golf, and then I read you and feel awful in some ways but inspired in many. Your in my thoughts and prayers so much and the moral/mental courage you display is so hard to adhere to and draws us to be our best, love Paul, x
  • Gerry on A Marathon, Not A SprintSorry, I got cut short... You have this unique ability to touch souls with your words. You always have done. But somehow, cancer has amplified that gift, in a way that goes to the core of humanity. Cancer has released you, fully into the world. And we are the grateful benefactors of that release.
  • Gerry on A Marathon, Not A SprintWhat you write has relevance for all of us - touched by cancer, or not. I did a thousand-mile hike through the Appalachians, and remember vividly reaching that ridge, only to find the next one still ahead. That was years ago, before I was able to relate that in some metaphoric way to life. This post did that for me, and gave me an insight into your journey, from some kernel of my own experience.
  • Julie Barnes-Frank on A Marathon, Not A SprintOnce again I'm feeling connected to a very special person. You are writing stuff that I feel. Its helping so much but more importantly you're making me realise about options.Im so pleased Ive found you ...you are actually one of my options daft as it sounds. With you on Monday x
  • Sophie Sabbage on A Marathon, Not A SprintNow that made me cry Pam! Thank you
  • Pam Devine on A Marathon, Not A SprintYour sharing makes us all braver Sophie. That funny sensation you will feel as you ascend your next ridge is the feel of hundreds of our hands pushing you up and forward.
  • Martha deaton on A Marathon, Not A SprintBreath by breath, step by step. You are a beautiful teacher.
  • Robert on A Marathon, Not A SprintI went for a run this morning and at one point had the choice of taking either the long route or the shorter version. I took the shorter option (it was early and I hadn't had breakfast) but having read your blog I get that there's no short cut to anything worth having. You're special and I feel blessed to be on your list.
  • Sheila on A Marathon, Not A SprintTruly amazing.
  • Suzy Lucas on A Marathon, Not A SprintSophie, as ever there are jewels here for every marathon runner. What a gift, thank you. Suze
  • Peggy Jarrett on A Marathon, Not A SprintYou teach me, Sophie, you teach me.
  • Karyn on A Marathon, Not A SprintSuch a great blog, you are so eloquent! I, too, was diagnosed Stage IV at the end of 2014 - brain, spine, lungs, liver. I, too, look at every alternative. Your book was there to boost me as no-one else could.. There are few who really understand. Thank you so much Sophie, from the bottom of my heart!
  • Cousin Mary on A Marathon, Not A SprintDarling Sophie. You are the most amazing girl: brave and wonderful and so bloody courageous. Your writing is pure poetry and I am swept up those ridges with you and should you falter, you know that everyone who loves you will be there to push and shove and do everything they can to get you over the next one. All our love is with you. xxx
  • Libby Kerr on A Marathon, Not A SprintYou really are a fabulous writer! Thank you for sharing your understanding and celebration of complexity, ambivalence and paradox - recognising the importance of both vulnerability and resilience, awe within the awful, that our souls need feeding as much as our cancer needs healing. And your imaginative search for treatments that reflect this - a profoundly integrative approach.
  • Gilli Stephens on A Marathon, Not A SprintOh Sophie, how wonderful that something has shifted in the system which is softening for you, by you and with you. Your high bar has become a familiar ridge for you which you know all about on the way up and that it is worth the effort. I find that the way you write about how you hang in is including and all-embracing. Thank you. Huge hugs xxxxxxxx
  • Julie Webster on A Marathon, Not A SprintI am not only moved by your story because my heart has been touched by our fleeting connections, but also because you are an amazing writer. Authentic, real and yet sensitive to the many contexts of your readers.

  • Clare Vivian-Neal on A Marathon, Not A SprintSophie, I am deeply touched. Thank you for taking the time and care to write and sharing your experience. You are a living example to me and many of how to embrace each day, all of it. Love, love, love you.
  • Julie W Brundage on A Marathon, Not A SprintSophie, there is a program in the U.S. called Sixty Minutes. Last week there was a portion devoted to brain cancer being attacked by polio injections.

  • Pam Barmby on The Cancer CanvasSo eloquent, so gracious, such a delicate touch. Much love to you Sophie.
  • Lydia Dickinson on The Cancer CanvasSophie, I so understand this idea and concept I had fleeting ideas about it in the past when people always referred to cancer as "a battle' - surely a deeper personal understanding of this and a conversation would win over the negativity of "battle" (being AGAINST) - your writing is helping me (and god knows how millions of others) grasp this brave but astonishing truth. Love you so X

  • Moana Bianchin on PSTSending wee prayers of love. Loving your writing - fear swamps me in a similar way at times, without all the events you are facing. Oh what a journey it is to be human. Warm thoughts, M.
  • Amanda marshall on The Cancer WarriorsI am sick and tired of being scoffed at by the medical profession for trying alternative approaches from basic things like a clean diet to off patent drugs. It feels like they want me to die when they say I should. Well I won't. Blogs like this are so important - keeping the information and support flowing. Cancer can be such an isolating place.
  • Amanda Marshall on The Cancer WarriorsI am sick and tired of being scoffed at by the medical profession for trying alternatives from as simple things as a clean diet to off patent drugs and bio resonance in a bid to survive to see my daughter at least get through school. I feel that they, the oncology team, want me to neatly fit into their prognosis statistics, and not upset their apple cart. Well I won't - keep up the fight!
  • Kate Brightwell on The Cancer WarriorsIs it similarly banned from OTHER People who aren't offering anything telling her story. If enough other people put up her story on their websites and FB pages it would drown out the official bans
  • Sophy Doyle on PSTOMG really identified with this post, Sophie. I had my results last week (inconclusive) and am now feeling every lump and bump as threatening. Ascites is back and I am so glad I can now get back to trying to sort out Next Steps!
  • Phil Haysom on PSTGood luck for the scans this week. Very best wishes Phil
  • June walker on The Cancer WarriorsPlease keep shouting. I will continue to direct people to your book and your story to allow people to be outraged at closing down the alternative treatments.
  • Judi on PSTHi Soph Spent time with my sister in law this holiday, who is in remission and has been for 2 years. She reads your blog and gets lots of strength from it. At one point over the holiday we were both in the kitchen hugging each other and crying with joy that she is HERE, in such gratitude for life...both yours and hers and my own. Stay strong. Judi xx
  • ellen sizer-james on The Cancer WarriorsThe 'profit before people'paradigm seems so ingrained in the financially higher echrlons of global activity. Flood prevention, corporate tax avoidance, attacking the welfare of society's most vulnerable, the arms trafe. Mainstream media's dividesign us with attempts to blame and marginalise. Medical approaches to cancer reflect this with only mainstream approaches and information given credenc
  • Wendy on The Cancer WarriorsWe not only have to fight the cancer, we have to fight the people that are voted in to help us and the pharmaceuticals battling to hold onto their monopoly. In numbers, we have strength! ;o)
  • Sally on The Cancer WarriorsI so agree with everything written here. I hoped my oncologist would be interested in alternative ways to support my body through intensive ChemoRadiation treatments but she wouldn't even look at the IV Vitamin C research & advised not to take anything other than the hospital prescribed. I was however offered a "trial" of 2 other chemotherapy drugs prior to commencing the standard ChemoRadiation!
  • Ruth Clark on The Cancer WarriorsAfter 6 sessions of chemo and two years of "maintenance chemo" I got an all clear from my oncologist. So I asked her "What next?" It was with no signs of feelings at all that she said "oh, it will come back, maybe in 5 years, maybe less". I think she was counting the money in her head. That's what put me on this path. I've found it so disgusting. To have treatments that work kept from us.
  • Anne McCabe on The Cancer Warriorswholehearted support for shouting loudly. I've had surgery, chemo, hormone and radiotherapy for breast cancer diagnosed Sept 14 and now am addressing diet, microbiome, and stress issues. Along the way I've become tired of the flippant rejection of complementary, diet, and mental well being approaches that have proven worth. The profit motive seems to play a shocking role
  • Carol Carter on The Cancer WarriorsHi Sophie, I had grade 3 bowel cancer nearly 7 years ago. My prognosis wasn't good. I had one lot of chemo, the line kept coming out and the liquid would go over my skin (an absolute no no). I didn't have any more. I got a book from Dulwich Health called Cancer - the full menu. It talks about what to do to stop the body environment helping the growth of the cancer. I found it a great.
  • Robin Daly on The Cancer WarriorsSophie, the systematic removal of choice in cancer treatments by a corporate-driven profit agenda over the last 75 years or so is a travesty, an assault on our right to choose how to heal our own bodies from disease. I share your position of wanting the broadest possible choice for patients and would hope that a public once made aware would demand this.
  • Lindajoy on The Cancer WarriorsI too am shocked by how easy it is to access toxic treatments, how difficult to access gentler ones. Only people with money have the choice.
  • Kathy Finholm on The Cancer WarriorsI am a friend of your parents, whom I see each year in Mexico. I have followed your blog, downloaded your book, and always look for updates from you. You have NAILED it ... sadly, most of this comes down to money ... profit for pharmaceutical companies and money in medical "professional's" pockets. Shameful, egregious practice and yet, it continues. And what happened to free speech?
  • Andrea on The Cancer WarriorsFantastic blog Sophie - as someone with cancer I want to look at all my options and give myself the best chance possible. I am finding the whole thing a mine field and can't believe how closed minded conventional doctors are. There are so many alternatives out there why aren't they readily available? WhYdo I have to seek them out with difficultly - as if I haven't got enough on my plate already.
  • Karyn on The Cancer WarriorsThanks Sophie, I don't understand it either. I haven't told my oncologist about any of the alternative therapies I am doing. I 'm doing the best I can to stay alive for as long as I can, I wish it were easier, i wish it could be accepted! I find it hard to believe that there is a conspiracy to keep us in the dark. I want to maintain my trust. But it's all very hard.
  • fran on The Cancer WarriorsSophie, I too have cancer & wholeheartedly share with your frustration & outrage regarding the significant blocks to accessing an integrated approach in this country. My right to make informed choices about my treatment is profoundly compromised.
  • Prue on The Cancer WarriorsShout it from the rooftops sophie/ I'm totally behind you and will support you in any way I can xx
  • Caroline Rowland on The Cancer WarriorsHi I am a fellow cancer sufferer (stage 4 stomach) I am in total agreement with you. We need the freedom to explore the alternatives. It's appalling that Fiona has been told to remove her blog. We need to hear stories like hers which give real hope
  • Jo Price on The Cancer WarriorsSophie, I don't have cancer but have some very personal experiences that have touched my life in huge life changing ways. After suffering from 'cancer-phobia' for some time now, your blog is the only one that makes me feel mentally strong - strong enough to ask the right questions, demand the right treatment, and keep my wits about me if the worst should ever happen. Please shout as loud as you ca
  • Peggy Jarrett on PSTCount on it, sweetheart! Many prayers sent for you and yours.
  • Catherine on The Cancer WarriorsBrave insightful writing thank God and as usual . There has to be a way of transforming the insidious bullying into a collective desire for all the HOPE to be aired and shared loudly . Bravo dear friend to all who are in despair and kept in terror . Catherine
  • Suzanne on PSTHolding you in my thoughts and prayers. May the results you are seeking be yours. Blessings!!
  • Anna B. Sexton on PSTIn the prayers each day xx
  • Lusa Dennys on The Cancer WarriorsSophie, your powerful words continue to ring true. While I don't have cancer, I do have Lyme disease and the medical & insurance powers-that-be are pulling the same kind of abhorrent, controlling stunts that only hurt the very ill human beings who are trying their hardest to get comprehensive iinformation & treatment. Advocacy, REAL education & awareness like you are providing has to continue !
  • Pam Barmby on PSTSending you, John and Ganriella much love, light and hugs for your upcoming scans and also for the year ahead, and what it holds for you. Pxxx

  • Sophie Sabbage on The Spiritual GymAmazing to hear this Jayne. Thank you. Made my day!
  • Jayne on The Spiritual GymI love your attitude to life, health, everything. I am simply a totally changed person thanks to your amazing book. I went to my Slimming World Group today, completely focussed and dedicated, after years of failure. I have an incredible clarity I have never experienced before. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. I wish you good health, long life and happiness xxx
  • Jack Palma on The Spiritual GymYour blog is spot on Sophie. Thanks for sharing the process by which you got clear as to your intention and clear of the ego's snare. You are such a spiritual warrior and such an inspiration and teacher to me and I trust so many others.
  • Karyn on The Spiritual GymI wasn't bothered by the headline, sometimes my anger bubbles to the surface and I think I thought "ok, yeah, why not, go to hell cancer (without me though)". But then I took a deep breath and got back to the job of staying alive. Your book is great. Have faith you are helping people you will never know. Thanks for the clarification, but it wasn't necessary I still have faith in who you are, xxx
  • warren kahn on The Spiritual GymMasterful response Sophie.
  • Gerry Moline on The Spiritual GymIt takes great courage to walk an unorthodox path in a very public way, and to keep walking it in service of others even as the arrows fly. Thank you for being a model of this. I trust that your book will find its way into the hands of those for whom it was written.
  • Kay on The Spiritual GymYour honesty and clarity about what you are learning in this spiritual gym is inspiring; your commitment to being with your intention, to seeing the gifts and acting on them. This in particular rang like a bell: 'I have learnt that resilience flows from intention not outcome, from the clarity of my seeing not how I am seen. ' Thank you Sophie
  • PamDevine on The Spiritual GymThe Daily Mail owes you an apology. Correction of the online version headline is fine but they should give you space for an op-ed in the paper explaining the blatant wrongness of their headline. I would have taken to my bed for a month...but look at you...back on your feet and once again writing that lovely, clear prose which sets everything straight.
  • photon on The Spiritual GymSophie the vibration of your authentic reality tenderly reminds us all that being yourself is all there is - the mail headline reminds YOU to stop looking for yourself in things around you- for everything that exists, exists as yourself - remember you are attempting to exist in a state of pure possibility - so you can pull the non cancer state out of the matrix - Beauty truth and goodness xxx
  • Sophie Sabbage on The Spiritual GymA brief post script: The Mail is going to change the headline on their online version of the article! I am grateful for that gesture and, to be completely clear, incredibly grateful they ran the piece. Good things are already flowing from it. Feeling blessed.
  • Andrea on The Spiritual GymHey Sophie - yes the headline is harsh - one I've seen over and over again where the cancer diagnosis is a battle that has to be won - I have read your book and I totally understand that the war metaphor is the farthest from your approach. The headline will however attract the masses and create interest/drive traffic to the book - means to an end donyi speak. Hang in there girl ♥️
  • Nicky Needham on The Spiritual GymThankyou Sophie for your loving words they touched me deeply. In the greatest moment of fear and vulnerability there you are standing on your own truth and intention with integrity and love. I see your battle with your mind not the cancer and as a true spirited warrior I see you clear your mind and take another step forward. One more time.
  • Annie k on The Spiritual GymStruggling to deal with breast cancer last 10 months. I am clear now (or am I?) only just starting to deal with what it has done to me mentally and physically - your website, your story, your strength your wisdom - will be the making of me. Thank you Sophie
  • Emma Dunn on The Spiritual GymWhen I saw the Daily Mail headline (and having read your book), I thought "that's not what it's about; that isn't what's she's saying". It is wonderful to have the press platform to assist in publicising your work; that's a huge readership, so let's celebrate the fact that within those significant numbers, so many other people (not the ignorant criticisers) will benefit. Keep on keeping on !
  • Miranda on The Spiritual GymSophie, For everyone who has read your book, been touched by your eloquent writing and is on the cancer journey, your integrity and intentions dazzle and obliterate such an ignorant headline. In my dealings with the press, pieces never appear without an inaccuracy. But to those of us, for whom you are shining such a bright light, it just doesn't matter. Your authenticity shines through.😊
  • Eileen Mitchell on The Spiritual GymThank you Sophie for your willingness to be so vulnerable - as someone reminded me lately "Don't shout at the darkness , just turn on the light."
  • Helen Cadbury on The Spiritual GymTerrible headline: but, as a new subscriber to your blog, it caught my eye. I thought 'oh, I'm sure I was recommend to read Sophie's stuff by someone wiser than that' - and I was. Your response to the headline is excellent and part of the dialogue that we all need to get into, and is beautifully phrased. I will certainly read more and get your book. Thank you.
  • Tabitha Coupe on The Nocebo EffectThis post is so beautifully crafted and inspiring. I know from watching my Mum with MND that your words will help many people beyond the cancer community too.
  • Gilli Stephens on The Nocebo EffectDearest Sophie, If you believe that we come into this world with a purpose and a mission I think you have tumbled into yours. You were born to do this; you are going to leave something far better than you found it and I am grateful and thrilled that your wisdom,creation and resource is already recognised and available. I follow you closely as I pass on all that you offer. Blessings bright star xx
  • Pam Devine on The Nocebo EffectYou will make a difference Sophie. The wisdom you have gained from your journey with cancer, and which you are so generously sharing, will help many others to face their cancer journeys with hearts and minds open and with the joy and power that will bring to their lives. But you are not only helping those who have received a diagnosis of cancer. You are reminding all of us how to live.
  • Jane Sleven on The Nocebo EffectBrave writing Sophie! Whoever would've believed that the cancer would propel you into the space you inhabit now. I remember you as a lovely young woman years ago at LTW - you're still young & you're still lovely 😊 I'm also watching Ty Bollinger's incredible documentaries, I know which routes to follow should illness befall me. Love from Jane xx
  • Jenny Meadows on The Nocebo EffectSooo proud of you, Sophie. And thank goodness for your friend Catherine, and that you stopped panicking long enough to hear, really hear, what she was saying.
  • Jo O'Farrell on That Day WhenThanks, Sophie, for sharing that day. Love the boots! God bless you always.
  • ALISON POPE on One Year OnSophie - I am deeply moved by the enormity of the journey that you live every day, and of the extraordinary achievements in living the last year they way you have. Your insights, your kick ass motivation and your willingness to share your vulnerability is an extraordinary gift to all of us. Your book is life enhancing and made me cry, laugh and left me with a deep sense of peace. God Bless You.
  • Paul McAweney on That Day WhenWhat about that day when you read stuff and think about it and realise you could do more and be more than you have so far been? Is that what being inspired really means? If it does then you have inspired me Sophie, not for the first time. Stay strong and loving towards that and those that you love and believe in , that's what makes you so special Sophie , xx

  • Cousin Mary on That Day WhenDarling Sophie, I am crying - with happiness this time, not like last year. It's past midnight and I am grinning like an idiot thinking of you conquering the world with your cheeky grin and gorgeous boots and total determination to not be beaten. You are bloody wonderful.
  • Prue on That Day WhenYou deserve 'that day' and so many more like them xxx
  • Sophie Sabbage on That Day WhenAlready being asked to clarify scan results. Primary tumour same size as last scan, but no trace of the other tumour in my lung, which was detectable last time. Just scarring. So still have cancer peeps and remission (a.k.a The Flirt) still eludes me, but determined to biff that primary bugger somehow. So watch this space! ‪#‎stayhumble #‎stillwhispering

  • Laurence Cass on Terminating ‘Terminal’Lovely inspiring words.. Thank you Sophie, It amazes me that i sometimes need to be reminded of my mortality to motivate me into presence! How easy it is to drift of into mind wandering. May God bless you and your family X
  • Nicky on Terminating ‘Terminal’Wow Sophie. You write so eloquently honestly with courage and conviction - just as it is, Life , death, Living, dying. How bloody refreshing 'we are all terminal' yes we are. Only when we get that, will we Actually love in true gratitude for every single moment we get to share at this time on this planet on this journey in which we are all connected.
  • Robert on Terminating ‘Terminal’Just read this note from the Universe:- 'There's a name for the magic which transforms lives, connects dots, moves mountains, and orchestrates coincidences that shock and astound. Imagination And there's a name for all that stops you in your tracks, stirs fear, spins wheels and leaves you wondering, 'Hey, what's up with that?' Imagination So, be careful where you point that thing.' With love xx
  • Pam Devine on Terminating ‘Terminal’Amen indeed! Long live Sophie, The Terminator of "Terminal"!
  • Peggy on Terminating ‘Terminal’Soph, every word of this post was like a feast. I had to chew it and then chew it some more and at some point, swallow. The blow-me-away sanctity of what you write is almost more than I can digest...except that I do. I thank you, dear friend, for the journey you have been on and the journey we are ALL on that you keep pointing to. What a year. A blessed year. Who would've thought...?
  • Charlotte on Terminating ‘Terminal’Great and so looking forward to your book xxxx

  • Cathy on My Beautiful BrainHi My Kindred Spirit, I am so happy for you! I have coined a phrase, I am not terminal but eternal!! I also refuse to have that word pronounced over me!!! The Bible says " life and death are in the power of the tongue". I thank God everyday for my healing. I am expecting to live into my 90"s, which I may renegotiate when I am 89. haha and I expect to be reading your latest stories then too!
  • Olivia Clarke on Advance or RetreatYou may not like these words because they are coming from your sister but you are hard on yourself. You are doing so well and there are bound to be set backs. My faith in you has not diminished at all. I think you are an incredibly courageous woman and you had some tough choices to make. I am delighted you have been on Retreat and unlike you I love that word. It embodies the Feminine. xxx

  • Sarita on Advance or Retreatbless you Sophie. I have a friend who's been in excruciating pain with kidney stones for months now, refusing an op & being supported by a homeopath instead - I think it's the last one which is just not coming out - & it's been really hellish.

  • darren hazael on Sassy Soothing Side EffectsHi Sophie like many others reading through some of you notes has been very inspiring, touching and evoking. I did not realise you had cancer until I came across a post on facebook and found you blog/diary. You made a comment about cancer may be the bodies or lifes last resort to waken one up....this reminds me of one of my favourite quotes from the prophet Mohammed whom says 'Why must man die before he wakens'.

  • Sophie Sabbage on Postcard 9: Breaking NewsGood question. Hard to tell. I do such a gumbo of things. I give due credit to the inhibitor drug I am on, which I have had an exceptional response to but which has a limited shelf life in 95% of cases because the cancer mutates and resists. I believe I am enhancing its efficacy in multiple ways while doing what I can to make it harder for my cancer to resist (e.g. diet, supplements, Vit C, Laetrile etc). I need to stay the course.

  • Hannah Yadi on My Beautiful BrainSmiling. And crying a little bit. Then smiling again.
  • hannah yadi on Cut Across The GrassThis is so beautifully written Sophie. You are a wonderful storyteller. You drive me to tears but steer me back towards laughter with every sentence. Always leaving me with a feeling that anything is possible and making me want to grab life by the horns!
  • Ann McMaster on Ninety Days at a TimeDearest Sophie - your words strike to the heart of the human spiritual dilemma. Thank you for stating so succinctly, elegantly and raw-ly what it is to be a spiritual warrior in a human being's journey. I love reading your posts, and cannot tell you enough how grateful I am that you are including "us" in your journey. As always, you are in my Prayer Bowl.
  • Julie and Howie Brundage on Ninety Days at a TimeSophie, once again our words are never enough but our hearts hold you and we pray for you and your family. I wish I could write as beautifully as you but even the nuns told me that I was not very talented as a writer. They also told me not to sing but I do not care and sing all the time. What a book you will write!
  • Sue Sneed on Ninety Days at a TimeDear Sophie, You share your vivid reality with riveting words through the ether and over the oceans. Your journey is unimaginable for most, too familiar for others. It is a sacred path filled with all the tumultuous waves of life. Thank you for your vulnerability, your authenticity and for being so willing to share your life with the us...the world. Much love, gentle healing and endless gratitude, Sue
  • June Walker on Ninety Days at a TimeI missed commenting after reading the last posting - I can't accurately remember why - but I think it was becuase I needed space to deal with my tears. Tears of understanding not becuase I have cancer, but becuase I remember my Mother's journey, becuase I am a fellow human being, becuase I love your writing Sophie, becuase I am visual in my responses to life and the pictures you paint with words are so vivid and engaging. I am engaged in your journey and am full of gratitude to be so. Because I go to a Natureopath I am ...(To read more, click post link)
  • Amanda Nicol on Ninety Days at a Time...and sharing it so beautifully too
  • Amanda Nicol on Ninety Days at a TimeDear Sophie, We spoke some time ago about treatment in Mexico and I have been following your blog with great interest. Well done for your tenacious determination and for sharing your journey. I too am writing about mine and particularly around the environmental aspects. All the very best for your project and continued healing.Fear is such a tough one...have you read Dying to be Me by Anita Moor jan? It helped me a great deal with my fear. With much love, Amanda
  • Elizabeth Digby-Firth on Ninety Days at a TimeBeautifully expressed. Your boat is on course towards what you really value. Remember when unhelpful thoughts come (towards the dates of your scans) acknowledge them as passengers in your boat, but remind them whose hand is on the tiller. You are in charge not them. Thoughts are only thoughts not facts and not you. Often when we sit with what is most difficult that is when our greatest learning occurs. Sail on sister. Whatever you are thinking God is with you.
  • Alison Pope on Ninety Days at a TimeDearest Soph - your courage in the face of fear, pain and the unknown is tangible. Your almost lyrical descriptions of uncertainty underpinned by your faith are inspirational. Keep fighting the fight. Keep the Faith. There are times when we are most vulnerable when the faith of others holds us and keeps us safe. We will hold the hope and the strength and belief for you. Faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we cannot see. With special love and Happy Birthday, you old bag, Chubs xxxx
  • Sophie Sabbage on Sassy Soothing Side EffectsHi Carol. Thank you for this. Been meaning to ask how you got your ferritin levels up quickly. And do share more about co-enzyme Q10. I am very interested. xxx
  • Charlotte on Sassy Soothing Side EffectsDear Sophie, This is so touching and wise, I would like to think I could write like you have done in the same position but I doubt it, it is amazing and inspirational for anyone to read and think about... whatever their circumstances. Love and best wishes, Charlotte
  • Carol Carter on Sassy Soothing Side EffectsDear Sophie Your blogs open my heart. Six years ago I was diagnosed with grade 3 bowel cancer, 90% chance of being dead in 5 years. I'm here and got rid of it. Like you I took charge of my illness. Why did I get it? What could I do to help my body fight it? I discovered lots. I discovered that cancer likes an acidic body. If I could make it more alkaline I would be able to fight it better. I discovered that cancer likes a non oxygenated environment. I noticed my ferritin (iron) levels were low and ...(To read more, click post link)
  • Rosie Jackson on Sassy Soothing Side EffectsSophie, I would rather read your blog than a million books of poetry/health care/even spirituality. This is so rare to garner wisdom so humanly, eloquently, movingly. You make me believe in everything. I didn't know it was your birthday. MANY Happy Returns. Huge love Rosie xx
  • Clare Vivian-Neal on Sassy Soothing Side EffectsThank you Sophie for your words about leaning in to listen to the healing whispers on offer on the journey through love rather than battle or war. You are an inspiration to me and many. Thank you. And very many blessings to you for your BIRTHDAY. Cxx
  • Ian on Sassy Soothing Side EffectsSo wonderful to be reminded, Sophie, of what is so special for me in my life (on-the-mouth kisses are definitely right up there), and what is still, every day, available as my personal response to my own life experience - the challenges, the chances, the changes. Thank you.

  • Pam Devine on Cut Across The GrassAs a "body empath" Sophie, you have clearly been able to help others with their pain. Perhaps that gift is now being returned to you in the form of your new therapist...or is finally being directed within. Your writing is making better people of all of us who have the privilege of reading it.
  • Julie W Brundage on Cut Across The GrassI hesitate to try to write because I do not have any skills in writing and it is embarrassing to try to put down something that does not sound inane. I wish I could paint my response and hope that I could express myself that way. It would be a "high key" painting Sophie. It would be filled with light! God bless you, Julie and Howie Brundage
  • Rich Tedrow on Highlights from Mexico (trip 2)Sophie, I knew your husband back in college in England. Im sending you all my best for a safe journey through all this. Rich
  • Olivia Clarke on Cut Across The GrassI wanted to respond to “Cut Across the Grass”……what an exquisite piece of writing. I’ve never seen you more perky, buoyant, radiant, spirited and alive. Your writing gets ever more beautiful. I truly believe your cancer is a gift (and a shitty one, I know, when you first got it!) and your soul has responded with inspired brilliance. Like Dr Monoz, I’m more than hopeful that the cancer in you will retreat and total remission is possible. Faith can move mountains. Healing is a quantum leap into the miraculous. Cancer is a turning point from surviving to thriving……so let your ...(To read more, click post link)

  • June Walker on Highlights from Mexico (trip 2)Having read two diary entries this morning I can not post a comment on the second. (No space for that). As always the writing, the words flowing to me are of the quality that inspires engages and enfolds me. And then I remember the dark material. The mind gets active about that. "I shouldn't be appreciating so enjoyably" in the faace of this horror. But the very smile you speak about on Brad's face I remember so well. I sometimes quote the effect it had for me, It had an all knowing - not the ha ha ha ha ha ...(To read more, click post link)

  • ERICA ALHEIT on Quantum LeapLovely Sophie I love reading your articulate and honest blog about your journey. There is something that is so beautiful that is happening to you, Sophie, in this process- I hope you can see that. I honour you in your journey to wellness but, really, it's mostly your journey to fully claiming the powerful warrior woman that you are! No doubt about it. Yell that to the heavens, sister! Have you read Anita Moorjani"s book "Dying to be me" ? It's truly beautiful and it might just resonate with you in your journey.
  • Julie Anne Webster on Quantum LeapInspired and humbled Sophie, excited and pleased, all these things rising up after reading your blog. You are continuing to be a gift to me. Thrilled you have found this place.
  • Anna B Sexton... on Quantum LeapYou live the work you teach and every time you share highlight that choosing to be free is not an 'easy' choice. Yet you do this again and again xx sending our love from here in the freshly rained upon East End of London, UK. Anna xxx
  • Anna B Sexton... on My Top Ten Miss ListI for one look forward to sharing a fantastic non boozy G&T they create in the old Tower Hamlets Council block now a 5***** hotel... it's so authentic in taste you can't tell there is not booze in it! xx
  • Gilli Stephens on Quantum LeapYeah Sophie, I see Anne Brown in your picture - is she your companion this visit? what a marvelous hand to have holding yours. Refreshing to read of the up beat attitude around you, may it feed you and uplift you and send those tumours fleeing. You have made some fantastic achievements and I look forward to reading of more. Huge hugs as always. Gilli xxxxx

  • Aftab Erfan on Quantum LeapALSO! I discovered these sympathy cards for serious illness today and thought you might enjoy: https://info.emilymcdowell.com/empathy-cards-for-serious-illness/
  • Aftab Erfan on Quantum LeapDear Sophie, even though I have been signed up for your blog updates since the beginning, I only today found the courage to read one. Your writing today couldn't have spoken more directly to the fear I felt until now in reading your story, and the possibility of suddenly turning it around. It seems I have to get over this fear over and over again with each friend who goes through cancer, which says something about the grip that the dominant narrative has on us. I am thrilled to be connected this way, thrilled that you're so alive and enjoying ...(To read more, click post link)
  • Mary Caroe on My Top Ten Gifts of CancerAll very thought provoking, medically interesting ( from a doctor)!)and so inspiring and encouraging. Get your messages Sophie to others in a similar situation. Much love Mary

  • Samina on My Beautiful BrainHard to express how I feel. Happy for your news, yes. Glad for your family, yes. Inspired by your courage and ability to express your journey, yes. Yet underneath all of this something else bubbles, something about the absolute unknowability of living, of our lives and how you seem to be constantly mining that truth over and over. Thank you for sharing your courage and wisdom with us all. You inspire me profoundly.
  • Suzy and Colin Webster on My Beautiful BrainYou have brought inspiration and hope to so many people- your beautiful heartfelt writing has created a great chain of further miracles and the pain though great has not been in vain.

Hope to see you in the summer at Grendon. Bless you & John & Gabriella..All love Brenda xxxxxxxxxxx.
  • John E. Hoover on Scan ResultsDear Eyes Wide Open Sophie, I LOVE your open relationship with the part of you that is behaving cancerously. I relate so much with what Anna B Sexton said. I don't think you took the pose of an "adversarial" as you participated in that process of consciously intending your tumors to subside. Like your relationships with people, your relationship with cancer can't NOT include your Self's natural "vibrations" of compassion, genuine interest, wisdom & strength And ever the teacher.....I suspect you will share your magnificent discoveries with the world.
  • JULIE W BRUNDAGE on My Beautiful BrainSophie, I know and love parents, and thus I love their offspring. I am a terrible writer, but I recognize beautiful writing. You have all our prayers and hearts, Julie and Howie Brundage

Many blessings and love from Gilli xxx
