Miracle Lady on 6th Floor: One Woman's Survival Through Cancer, Its Aftereffects and Near-Death Experience

Front Cover
AuthorHouse, 2002 - Biography & Autobiography - 112 pages

Cancer rings like a death sentence when you hear, "Your cancer is very serious!" Or the second time (a year and half later), "The five-and-a-half by seven-and-a-half inch mass has grown around your upper intestine; the main vein for the lower half of your body goes right through it and it lies against your aorta. We don't think we can do surgery."

The story covers the last two-and-a-half years of great physical attacks in Ruth's body: hemorrhaging, surgery, two cancers, radiation, ten weeks spent at the Cancer Treatment Centers of America/Tulsa, followed by a blown aorta (loss of twenty-three units of blood) and another surgery with only a one to nine percent chance of survival. The doctors, nurses, personnel and Catholic Father all called her "the miracle lady on 6th floor." She is amazed to be alive.

This book has no formulas or quick solutions recommended for healing. Ruth offers scriptural and practical ways to survive in the midst of fiery trials; to deal with the feelings of fear, pain, discouragement, depression, helplessness, and despair; and to retain hope for healing. She honestly shares her struggle in all three areas: that of the spirit, of the soul (mind and emotions), and the body.
