Welcome to the Wealthy Wellthy Life with Krisstina Wise. In part six of this new series on cancer, Krisstina speaks with Robert Rabbin, a seasoned public speaker, author, life-long mediation practitioner and cancer survivor.
In December of 2011 while in Australia, Robert began experiencing severe back pain that eventually led him to the hospital on Christmas Eve. After several tests were performed, the doctor’s gave him a grave diagnosis – they told him he had stage 4 lung cancer and gave him six to nine months to live.
Seeking refuge from all the well intentioned advice and support he was receiving, he looked inward and turned within to find the silence he desperately needed and to look for the answers of how he was going to respond to his diagnosis.
