Son en suurlemoene
About the book
Eight years ago, during a period Dr Frances le Roux thought everything was under control, she suddenly had to face a diagnosis of breast cancer.
It was a dramatic change in her life as a physiotherapist running a busy private practice. She suddenly had to face a mastectomy and chemotherapy. During her two-year journey, she, however, discovered inner resources, resilience, courage, faith, thankfulness, and the value of sincere relationships.
For 30 years she has researched the value of music as medicine, and also completed a Master’s degree on The effect of Music on Pain, and a PhD on The Effect of Music on the Immune Systems and Emotions during Infected Lung Conditions. She has written several articles on this subject.
On her cancer journey, she used music as medicine during chemotherapy sessions and rediscovered the functional status of music to act as an auditory blanket of hope. Son en suurlemoene is a book on how to survive difficult challenges in life.
