Donna Gould keeps a wooden box full of memories from her decade-long battle with breast cancer -- 500 get-well cards, a lock of her hair and a black cassette tape with a dog-eared label that reads "Donna's Hypnosis Tape." The objects remind Gould of a time when she was "literally scared to death." After enduring two lumpectomies and a bout of radiation, Gould learned she would need a mastectomy.
"Isn't it weird how the thing that scares you the most finds you?" said Gould, who was first diagnosed with breast cancer at age 50. "I just couldn't cope. I was an absolute wreck every day."
Gould said she knew her worry was only making her sicker. But the two-week wait for the dreaded procedure that would claim her breast was unbearable. Her friend, a hypnotist, suggested she try hypnosis to calm her mind and change her outlook.
