Loving Your Friend through Cancer:
Moving Beyond “I’m Sorry” to Meaningful Support
is coming May 31, 2018!
As a cancer survivor, I hear this question all the time: “A friend of mine just found out she has cancer. What do I say? How can I help?” I know from experience the struggle to figure out how to support a friend during difficult times.
In 2010, I spent several months fighting a rare and aggressive cancer called angiosarcoma. As a survivor, I minister to young women with cancer and those who are walking alongside a close friend through cancer. I’ve seen how friends who are armed with information can love and serve their cancer-fighting friends more confidently and compassionately. When I speak with friends of cancer patients, I describe the emotions, fears, experiences and challenges that accompany cancer diagnosis, treatment and survivorship. I give practical suggestions for what to say, what not to say, how to serve, and how to pray.
This book is the conversation I wish I could have with the close friends of every woman battling cancer.
In this book, I weave together my cancer story and the stories of other survivors and caregivers with practical advice and suggestions for friends of those with cancer. My goal is to empower women to confidently and compassionately minister to their friends with cancer.
I pray that Loving Your Friend Through Cancer will encourage cancer-fighters and those who care about them as they walk through cancer together. I’m excited to share it with you in May from P&R Publishing!
