About this book:
The diagnosis of cancer is something many people experience. The sense of hopelessness and helplessness can be overwhelming, and many need to find the strength to fight the disease. Prayers for Coping with Cancer is a collection of meditations, reflections, and prayers written by survivors of the disease.
The shock and fear of being diagnosed with cancer can paralyze a person's ability to form words of prayer. This book provides a way to talk with God, using the words of people who have been where the newly-diagnosed is today. It can help anyone diagnosed recently, currently undergoing treatment, or enjoying the hope-filled life of remission to realize that God is listening to our prayers.
When you don't know what you can do for your loved one with cancer, give her this book. It can help to find comfort in knowing others have experienced the same fear and questions, and to talk with God and understand his never-ending love.
