Surviving Cancer and Chemotherapy

Surviving Cancer

When you hear the word cancer, you tremble. Recently, the doctor found I had enlarged lymph nodes. I understood he was trying to rule out cancer, but I felt creepy when my scan took place in the hospital cancer center.

I’m a retired RN, so I know what can happen.

Have you ever noticed people whisper when they talk about death? I heard a pastor from England remind the congregation that death is serious. At the least, facing death makes you evaluate your life.

Don’t get me wrong, I’m confident in my faith, but I’m not anxious to be sick. The ups and downs of chemotherapy weigh on the family as well as the patient.

I’m thankful my tests came back normal.

Today my guest is Joanie Shawhan, and she shares how she lived through cancer and chemotherapy. Her book is called Dancing with Cancer.

Check out this episode!

    What a helpful and hope-filled interview! Thank you so much. It helped to hear not only what Joanie went through, but how we might be of practical help and encouragement to others facing a cancer journey.
