Cancer Just Is Pre-Orders!

I am pleased to announce that Cancer Just Is has been made available for pre-order through my publisher’s website! Just click here to check it out and order your copy today! Pre-orders will ship by mid-December, which works perfectly for those wishing to give it as a gift. This is a very exciting time for me, and I am beyond grateful to my publisher for working to have Cancer Just Is available on such a short timeline.

October 19th, 2018

Well, it’s been a month already since we got “the scans.” In that time I haven’t felt I’ve gone downhill at all, but who knows if that’s reflective of what’s going on inside me. Something I learned early on in my time having cancer is that how you look doesn’t necessarily have any bearing on how you feel, and how you look and feel doesn’t necessarily relate to your actual state of health. So I’ll refrain from making any assumptions. It'd be nice if the Votrient was keeping things in check, but that's unlikely.

Since we got the news that my cancer started to grow exponentially and had spread more than ever before, we’ve enjoyed a wonderful cruise along the Rhine and a lovely week in Orlando with both our immediate families. We don’t really have much planned from here on out, but we’ll be visiting with friends and extended family as much as we can and see what other ways we can make the most of our remaining time together. I have a couple writing projects I’m looking at wrapping up and another publishing prospect in the works, which I’ll announce more about when I can. For now, we’ll keep doing the one thing we can: enjoying each moment for what it’s worth, in whatever ways we can.

I’m getting published!

I am beyond thrilled to announce that my book ‘Cancer Just Is’ has found a publishing home with Smyth and Helwys, an independent Christian publisher based in Georgia. I don’t have a release date and it isn’t available for pre-order yet, but I will update here as soon as we figure out those details. Right now it’s in the copy-editing and cover design phase of things. I’m so grateful that this book will be published and that my ideas about cancer and God have a chance to reach a broader audience now.
