Cancer, I Forgive You: How I Chose Peace Instead of War with my Son’s Cancer Journey
Written by Shirley Johnson; Illustrated by Book Cover Designer: Andrea Schmidt; Edited by Glenys Dreyer
Her son has brain cancer, but she has never been happier.
Not only has her son’s diagnosis turned her and her family’s life upside down, but the pandemic COVID-19 also broke out at the same time when her son was undergoing brain surgeries. However, instead of going to war, she chose to redefine her narratives about cancer, not allowing herself to be blindsided by fear, so she got to the other side of that terror, standing on firm ground. Forgiveness was the only way to win the fight and heal the soul.
Besides, her attitude change towards cancer also changed her opinion regarding conventional cancer treatments. She advocates funding on research and clinical trials that do not involve harsh treatments, namely, highly toxic chemotherapy and radiation, which result in permanent health damages.
This is an inspiring story about the hardest mindset shift she has ever had to make, her journey, one that she chose to make peace with cancer in order to win this fight, letting cancer heal her life.
