Breast cancer affects everyone it touches, whether firsthand or through the life of a loved one. Counselor and teacher Yvonne Ortega discovered this when she was diagnosed with breast cancer and began her journey. In Finding Hope for Your Journey through Breast Cancer, she shares with readers her personal triumphs and setbacks with humor and refreshing candor, always reminding us of God's desire to meet us exactly where we are. In this repackaged book, sixty devotions are divided into sections--diagnosis, surgery, treatment, and recovery--each incorporating Scripture into daily life. It also includes a new chapter on living with the possibility that cancer may return. Ortega's attention to even the most basic hopes and fears that a cancer patient faces each day offers encouragement that can come only from one who has been there herself.
Cancer isn't the last word. Hope is. When you've been diagnosed with breast cancer and you're in the midst of hospital visits and treatments, you may wonder, Where is God? Where is his love and mercy? Yvonne Ortega knows how you feel--she's a breast cancer survivor herself. Through sixty inspirational readings, she walks alongside you with encouragement and compassion gleaned from God's Word. There will be triumphs and setbacks in this journey from diagnosis to recovery. But Ortega reminds you that even when it looks like you are alone, God is there every step of the way.
