Cancer. Such a dreadful word.
What would you do if you found yourself or someone you love facing that?
This book can help. The author, Dennis Thurman, has served families during times of sickness and sorrow for forty years. As a pastor, he has visited hospitals and hospice units to minister to those dealing with disease or preparing for death. He has comforted parents devastated by a sick child, or still born, or deceased from a car wreck. Yet, until cancer claimed the life of his seven-year-old granddaughter, Mya Grace Phillips, he had not experienced such acute personal grief.
Mya’s mother, Kelly Thurman Phillips, describes her experiences that you will read interspersed throughout. You will find yourself surprised by faith and hope—light breaking into the Valley of Shadow. Eventually, all of us will face our mortality, the brevity of life, and gravity of eternity—for us and for those we cherish. This story will encourage you.
