Dear God, They Say It's Cancer

by Janet Thompson

Review  |   Author Bio  |  Read an Excerpt


Janet Thompson, author of Dear God, They Say It’s Cancer, has stocked her newest release chock full of everything a woman needs to journey through breast cancer. Having been down this road herself, she comes alongside others with encouragement, support, and a new angle of perspective.

At whatever point a woman finds herself, Janet has compiled the things she longed for on her own journey through breast cancer--appropriate Bible passages, prayers, and quotes from others battling this intruder. There’s also space for journaling, note taking, and tracking appointments. Presently heading a speaking and writing ministry titled About His Work ( AWH Publishing), Janet writes to her breast cancer sisters: “Things never seem as scary when you have a friend…I want to walk besides you.”

While I hope that this is a book you will never need, it is one you will not want to be without if you do face breast cancer. The author doesn’t mince words about Jesus Christ being the strength and salvation of our lives, no matter what we face. However, if I had to start on a journey with breast cancer, I think I’d appreciate a travel size version of this thick volume. – Cheryl A Cecil, Christian Book

Book Jacket:

The American Cancer Society estimates that each year nearly 216,000 women in the United States are diagnosed with breast cancer. Even though it now touches the lives of one in eight women in America, it launches powerful feelings of loneliness and isolation. Subtitled A Companion Guide for Women on the Breast Cancer Journey, Thompson’s book is a dear and wise friend as it walks readers through the difficult breast-cancer journey and accompanies them step-by-step through treatment and recovery. Offering spiritual, emotional, and practical support, this book is a thorough and gentle guide for hurting women.
