About the Book

This year there will be more than 1,660,290 new cancer cases in the U.S. Behind that sad statistic are many stories with both similarities and variations. Cancer’s shadow looms large, even for survivors. Fears often linger. Will the cancer come back? Will I experience limitations and side effects for the rest of my life? Are my loved ones predisposed to this disease?

Experiencing cancer (or other life-threatening diseases) is life changing and all pervasive. It affects every part of one’s life. It is not just a physical event. For some, it can become a spiritual journey, transforming relationships in a positive and healing way. The author explains the power of gaining knowledge about one’s disease and the treatments available for it, and the power of hope and a spiritual life, including a faith in something bigger than oneself.
