A Crash Course on Cancer Survival In 1995 Larry Burkett was diagnosed with kidney cancer, which had spread to his scapula, and his hope of survival was not favorable. Based on his own personal cancer survival journey, Nothing to Fear was written to help shorten the learning curve for others. What had Burkett learned? Well, among other things, he found that: the single most important factor in cancer survival is faith the opposite of faith is fear and it must be conquered not all cancer treatments work for everyone technology improves daily and offers more varied treatment options some alternative therapies offer much promise It is these time-proven, common sense lessons that Burkett shares with readers in this candidly personal book. Whether you or someone you know has received a cancer diagnosis, this book offers a healthy dose of wisdom. Or, as Burkett would define it, "useable knowledge" offered by someone who has been where you are. Burkett's theme, which rings throughout this handy volume like a chorus: "No medical doctor is really responsible for your health; you are responsible for your health. Doctors may help guide, give alternatives, advise, and administer whatever therapy you choose, but it's your body, and you must make the final decisions."

Filled with intimate stories and wisdom from the Word, this book will be a great help to the thousands of people who fight this disease, or to friends and loved ones of those in the midst of the struggle. Larry's 2003 passing was the result of heart failure rather than cancer. His legacy continues today and his words still bring hope to those in need of encouragement. 'Even if you can avoid dying from cancer, you'll certainly face something else that will eventually kill you, because all of us are going to die. As god as modern medicine is, it is not the ultimate answer. It will let you down. Trusting God is the answer. He will never let you down.' -Excerpt from Nothing to Fear

Remember that doctors don't know everything, so don't listen to negative talk. Don't' ask anyone, including your doctors, "How long do you think I'll live?" The person you're asking doesn't know the answer. Only God knows that. After being diagnosed with cancer, I met a man with pancreatic cancer who has become a good friend. Pancreatic cancer is presumed to always be fatal, usually very rapidly. Every time my friend goes to see a doctor he's told that he has only six months to live. They've been telling him that for 11 years. He travels back and forth to Russia several times a year to share his faith. If he had believed what the doctor said about his life expectancy, he might never have gone to share his faith in Russia. If you notice that you're getting down spiritually, emotionally, or mentally, find a friend who walks the talk in his or her faith. Kay Arthur says, "Faith recognizes that God is in control, not man. Faith does it God's way, in God's timing-according to His good pleasure." Get involved in helping other people if you are physically able to do so. You'll find that your troubles won't seem nearly so bad. Spend some time outside yourself. Make it a point to lift up someone else.
