First, I want to thank everyone for "celebrating" my five-year milestone! It's awesome to have everyone cheering me on. That's what got me through my treatment, of course. I couldn't have done it without the support of all the incredible people God has put in my life :).
God worked some amazing things through my cancer experience, and continues to do so now. Something beyond coincidence happened yesterday. On the exact date of my five-year "cancer free" anniversary, I received my copies of The Ultimate Christian Living--an anthology in which you will find TWO of my personal stories.
Both stories are about my cancer journey. One is about an answered prayer during a really tough time in my treatment, when I wasn't sure I could handle the side effects anymore. The other story tells what I learned after the fact, and how my diagnosis and treatment were in many ways a huge blessing.
If you're interested in reading my experiences, along with many, many other inspiring stories, check out www.hcibooks.com or Amazon.
This book would make a great gift for someone going through a tough time, or anyone trying to keep their faith strong. And, uh, Mother's Day isn't so far off either ;).
(OK, so I posted this a few hours ago and just realized I forgot to mention--the official release date of the book is not until March 1st! But you can pre-order!)
