Dare To Choose

A Journey of Self Healing


As a forty-something woman living an ordinary life in suburban Australia, Marie had the loving family, the supportive partner, and the fulfilling career; everything she had ever wanted. She was fit and felt healthy. But under the surface lurked a silent threat that would turn her world upside down and in one swift stroke, putting everything in perspective.

Dare to Choose chronicles Marie’s story as a cancer survivor, recounting the moments following the devastating news and the incredible life transformation that she underwent to take back control of her body and her fate, turning her disease into an opportunity to become the best version of herself she could possibly be; stronger, healthier, and more open to belief and love than ever before.

Dare to Choose is also the fulfillment of a personal promise. The promise to give back, reach out, and lend a hand through her words to all others who might be travelling down an unexpected fork in the road. This book is your wake-up call.

After undergoing procedures to extricate the tumors that were all over her body, Marie was ready and committed to embrace a better, healthier lifestyle. In this book, she will guide you through the process of rethinking the way you eat, the stuff you bring into your home, and understanding the nutrients that you do (or don’t!) feed your body. Marie guides you in relearning how to breathe by incorporating a meditation practice into your life, and teaches you about exercises to strengthen core muscles and fight off the pressures of ageing and the threat of disease.

The powers of belief and love were the cornerstones of Marie’s self-healing journey from the beginning of her diagnosis, and she wants you to feel moved and encouraged to believe in your own transformation as something totally possible. 


Praise for Dare to Choose

In introducing Dare to Choose: A Journey of Self-Healing, Marie Chronopoulos states: “A book on self-healing is never just a book. An idea for a book that finds its spark in the shadow of cancer is never just the seed of a story. It becomes much more than that. It gains a life of its own. It turns into a channel, a vessel, a chain reaction. At least that is how I’ve come to see this story and this book. My story, born of unexpected news, impossible odds, and relentless fighting.” After reading this spellbinding, highly inspirational and informative book, I couldn’t agree more with her. This memoir is a gem that is loaded with powerful insights and wisdom, a book that opens a self-healing path to readers, and this isn’t just about healing from cancer, but mostly about living a healthy physical, moral, and spiritual life. In exploring answers to her illness, the author has unveiled powerful techniques, exciting truths, and knowledge to heal ourselves. 

Meet Marie in these pages, a dynamic and healthy woman in her mid-life, enjoying the joys of her family, a happy marriage, and a career when the devastating diagnosis of cancer comes, shattering her everything. In this book, she chronicles how she pulled herself together and started on a meaningful journey towards healing. From nutrition to exercise, from healthy habits to a powerful mindset, and from healing thoughts and meditation to a deep spiritual reach, Marie Chronopoulos guides readers on a journey towards wholeness and happiness. Dare to Choose: A Journey of Self-Healing is laced with interesting and entertaining anecdotes, insightful writing, and thoughts that will inspire readers. Written in a light-hearted and encouraging tone, this book will resonate in the hearts of those suffering from any kind of illness, and those seeking to live healthier and more meaningful lives. Here is one of the books I will be revisiting very often to find wisdom and light.
