Know anyone fighting cancer?

Just about every one of us knows someone who is struggling with the diagnosis of cancer. I personally remember hearing those words spoken to me by a military doctor when I was just nineteen years old with a baby at home and another one on the way. My husband was stationed at Amarillo Air Force base, and we had no family or close friends nearby. What I would have given for a book like Hope for the Journey through Cancer by my precious friend Yvonne Ortega! Obviously I am now a cancer survivor, as that diagnosis came in 1967, but I haven't forgotten the feelings that swirled around me when it was first delivered.

If you or someone you know/love is in that position now, please consider getting a copy of this excellent devotional-type book of encouragement, available at, any of the major online venues, and/or anywhere books are sold.
