Cancer I Forgive You: How I Chose Peace Instead of War with my Son's Cancer Journey by Shirley Johnson
Are you in need of encouragement? Are you or a family member battling cancer? Cancer is horrible, no doubt. However, today's BOOK OF THE DAY, "Cancer I Forgive You: How I Chose Peace Instead of War with my Son's Cancer Journey," by Shirley Johnson is a remarkable account of strength and courage. I can't even fathom what it must be like for her having to watch her son go through multiple brain surgeries and not give up hope. Her family's story is one of encouragement and strength that we all should read and gain inspiration from. Take a look.
HER SON HAS BRAIN CANCER, BUT SHE HAS NEVER BEEN HAPPIER.
Instead of going to war, she chose to redefine her narratives about cancer and forgive it in order to win the fight and heal the soul.
The author’s and her family’s life turned upside down when they found out about her son’s diagnosis. The pandemic COVID-19 broke out at the same time when Max was undergoing brain surgeries. After Max’s three brain surgeries, doctors announced that his hands would be permanently disabled; instead of giving up, Max was trying to move his arms every day. Today, Max can draw with both his left hand and right. This champion is ready to soar high, and only the sky is the limit.
This is an inspiring story about the most challenging mindset shift the author of the book has ever had to make in order to win this fight, letting cancer heal her life. It is not about struggling with it, suffering from it, breaking under the burden of it. It is about dealing with it and forgiving it.
Despite her son’s brain cancer diagnosis and surgeries having turned her and her family’s life upside down, the book's author managed to maintain an aura of happiness, peace, and grace.
She didn’t allow herself to be blindsided by fear, so she decided to go to the other side of that terror, standing on firm ground. Shirley turned negative emotions into forces of energy that empowered her to become as spiritually supportive as possible and keep a positive attitude.
Life is a journey; it ebbs and flows. Cancer contains opportunities for transformation and actions to expand higher and brighter and communicate with our spirit and soul about how to live our lives. The author is deeply convinced that it is possible to awaken soul beyond cancer and forgive cancer.
