Cancer Survivor Reveals Everything in What the Doctors Don’t Tell You and creates a community for teenagers in their Zen for Teens meditation app

UNITED STATES, Jan 6, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ – In What Doctors Don’t Tell You: A Woman’s Journey Through Hodgkin Lymphoma, Kimberly Joy Beam shares her experience of fighting and surviving cancer. Her memoirs are a compelling work of creative non-fiction books. She starts through the diagnostic and treatment process the day she finds the lump in her collarbone. She guides readers through the journey so that they understand why she has changed and her passion for living the rest of their lives. It also shows how many aspects in the fight against cancer doctors cannot convey, because the individual has to go these ways himself. In the pages of her book, Beam shares experiences and insights for those struggling for life – so readers don’t feel alone.

After Hodgkins, Beam experienced fear for the second time in her life. Her mother started calling it Post Traumatic Cancer, and her doctor didn’t deny it. Beam wanted to work in a hospital and change the systemic problems she saw with the role, so she went for a second Masters. In this study she learned meditation and mindfulness. Upon graduation, she attended weekly meditation programs, silent meditation retreats, studied breath work with a certified breath trainer, and became a qualified mindfulness teacher through UMass Medical School. She learned that she could calm the fear. She found the best version of herself.

Beam developed Zen for Teens as a place for teenagers to build their individual practice and community. The app’s 25 best subscribers and sharers are awarded the Zenbassador title each quarter. Zenbassadors are invited to a 2-hour Zoom meeting with Beam and invited to add content to the app. Zanbassadors are also invited to provide feedback on the app itself and thus help shape future versions of the app during development. Meditation, in conjunction with counseling, therapy, and medical treatment, has proven to be an effective integrative treatment for mental health problems. This app is available on iTunes and Google Play.

“Every experience in life contributes to who you become. Every experience has the potential to change you and shape your future. I didn’t want cancer or treatment. I blamed God for not healing me, that it was one of the most glorious and terrifying things I have ever been through. I changed my life because I got sick and had to undergo treatment. It also helped me find mindfulness and that led to the development of the meditation app. I would never have built zen for teens if I hadn’t gotten sick and walked the lonely paths I walked. I would never have built it if I hadn’t learned the power of meditation to keep fear at bay, “said Beam says.
