Moments With God: Diaries of a Cancer Survivor
The nursing staff at the office of the doctors who performed the mammogram this morning called my home two hours after the procedure and asked if I would please return the call as soon as possible. I most likely left something there. I returned the phone call. No, I did not leave something there. Thais VanGinhoven thought she had the perfect life: a beautiful home in the country, a long-term marriage, two wonderful children, and a great job. When she was diagnosed with breast cancer, it all began to unravel. With the perfect blend of humor and heartache, she tells the inspirational story of her courageous journey. She openly recounts her struggle to defeat cancer and make peace with her changed body. Although her husband grows increasingly distant and unsupportive, she finds strength in a community of friends both old and new. Most importantly, she comes to the realization that when she is walking daily with God her life seems surprisingly perfect, despite her circumstances.
