Eleven Years Later: One Family's Journey to Surviving Cancer
Lori Sorbo faces what no wife, child, or parent ever wants to encounter. Surviving several forms of cancer, beginning at the tender age of twenty-seven and extending for the next eleven years, the thirty-nine-year-old mother of three knows too well the harmful side effects, the exhaustive days, the loneliness, and the desire to live more than the typical healthy individual. Even though cancer takes the lives of approximately 565,650 Americans annually, and 10.8 million families have experienced this terrific battle, meeting it face-to-face makes Lori feel she is meeting someone only she is familiar with, someone who wants to harm her, and someone who threatens her life. Lori and family endure a test of faith, strength, and maturity that seems never-ending, always looming like a dark cloud on even the happiest days. With hopes of reaching out to cancer survivors who feel like they have lost all hope, Lori shares her story of endurance in hopes that others will face this dreadful disease head-on and never give up their will to live. Eleven Years Later, Lori proves the conflict doesn't affect just her, but her children, husband, parents, and friends. This is their triumphant story.
