As you read, this new book, a key factor is to remember that the patient and his/her family and friends cannot ask enough questions. You must battle cancer armed with knowledge in order to understand the challenge before you. The more informed you are, the more prepared you’ll be both spiritually and emotionally for what lies ahead..
The book includes anecdotes about the Crosses in Life, the Marbles on Saturday, and “I Wish You Enough” , a story from a father to his daughter. All are lessons we need to re-learn in order to understand the preciousness of life, and the importance of conveying our love to others when they most need it.
The Journey Through Cancer offers great spiritual, medical information as well as a practical guide for the cancer patient, caregiver, relative of patient, friend of patient, and all of those working on the patient’s prayer chain. As you read the book, please remember that each person being treated needs those daily naps, good nights of sleep, and the knowledge that their loved ones are in their corner at all times. It’s vital to offer support for the tremendous effort needed to battle this disease, with prayer, good wishes, humor and the occasional good meal.
