Ros Ben-Moshe has always loved writing.
She had always envisaged writing something around laughter and wellbeing but felt her personal story wasn’t especially powerful or compelling. That all changed when at 42 she received a shock diagnosis of bowel cancer. Laughing at Cancer – How to Heal with Love, Laughter and Mindfulness is the result.
Before the bowel cancer, Ros was lecturing in Health Promotion and Public Health, where she is currently an Adjunct lecturer in the School of Public Health at La Trobe University, Melbourne. She is also Director and Founder of LaughLife Wellbeing Programs, a company founded on her three passions: laughter, wellbeing and mindfulness. Today LaughLife is a leading provider of wellbeing, laughter wellness
and mindfulness programs. The MORE LAUGHTER Wellbeing Framework that she developed over many years to address and enhance all aspects of wellbeing had its roots in her book.
Her ‘LOL: Laugh out Loud’ laughter exercise project in residential aged care facilities featured on ABC TV and her laughter therapy program for dialysis patients at Monash Health on The Project (Channel 10) and in The Age online. This program won the Innovation in Nursing/Midwifery, Monash Health Nursing and Midwifery Award.
Every day she is grateful the bowel cancer was detected early. She practices gratitude and mindfulness daily using many of the techniques outlined in Laughing at cancer. It is her desire that this book awakens your inner smile and leads you down a path of love, joy, good health and life fulfillment.
In love and laughter,
Laughing at Cancer
