The diagnosis is cancer. Now what? You're getting advice from every direction - both spiritual and practical. 'If you have enough faith you can be healed.' 'If you eat more of this or less of that you can beat this thing.' 'Don't take chemo - it'll kill you.' 'Don't let them do surgery - it will spread the cancer.' 'My cousin went here for treatment and was cured.' 'My friend went there and she died.' What should you believe?The Cancer Survival Guide doesn't promise a cure. It delivers hope, encouragement, and practical steps you can take in determining, along with your doctors, what your treatment plan will be. Types of cancer that were considered death sentences 20 years ago are now curable, and many more advances are now in the works. There is every reason to hope.This book is about God and how he deals with His children in the most difficult of circumstances. For persons dealing with cancer, the coping process is far more than merely physical. It is, first and foremost, spiritual. Who but God could enable us to endure a fear and agony too deep for words and come through with rejoicing on our lips and hope in our hearts?
