Hope for the Journey Through Cancer

Hope for the Journey Through Cancer by Yvonne Ortega

From the cover and the publicist:

When you’ve been diagnosed with 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 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 us that even when it looks like we are alone, God is there every step of the way. Ortega helps readers see that, although cancer is a difficult illness to face, they do not have to face it alone.

Pattie’s Thoughts:

I liked that this book was written in short segments. Like bite-sized truffles of strength for the reader, these lovely devotions are highlighted by a Bible verse, called a “hope builder,” and end with a prayer for the reader to pray.

Ortega takes the reader from diagnosis, to surgery, to treatment, and then to recovery.

I think this would be a terrific resource for someone who is on the cancer journey, to encourage and strengthen.

Thanks to Kathy Carlton Willis Communications for a review copy of this book.
