Love, Hope, Faith: A Personal Journey Through Cancer
With love for her brother, hope for his healing, and faith that God will see them through, one woman shares the heart-wrenching experience of watching her brother progress through the stages of terminal cancer.
"He was my big brother, and I was his little sister. That says it all."Gaynel Gunderson and her brother Neil were typical sister and brother. They experienced their share of sibling angst but remained steadfast friends. Adulthood could not spoil that friendship, and their shared walk with God only bound them closer. But in March of 2000, a shocking blow tilted their world. Neil was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer, and the prognosis was bleak. In the ensuing days, weeks, and months, Gunderson recorded her thoughts and feelings in her journal. In these pages, we are allowed into the private world of Gunderson and her family. We see the progression of Neil's cancer, the emotional and physical ups and downs, and how the family's faith carried them through, even when it felt as though their prayers remained unanswered. If you face a similar journey, you will find support and compassion within these pages, and Gunderson's unique outlook will give you the courage to find peace amid the storm.
