A cancer diagnosis impacts a family as it attacks their loved one. What if they can fight not only the cancer, but also the joy-sucking demons
that attack on the way? Elaine shares the stories of her family: three generations who joined forces when Papa got cancer. Each generation from the eight young grandchildren, to the adult
children, to the wife adds insights to waging war against the collateral damage of cancer. Opening themselves to God’s guidance and will brought unexpected blessings to an unexpected
battle. There is no definitive guidebook on how to get a family through the long, demanding journey that cancer often requires. Each situation is unique. What is common is the emotional suffering. Is
it possible to experience hope? –find relief? –even laugh? With poignant honesty Elaine reveals the pain, love, and laughter they shared, and the lessons they learned through the
crisis they faced. Fractured prayers brought insights on how to communicate, understand family members’ reactions, help each other, encourage the young children, make decisions, and fortify faith in
their battle with cancer. Together they grew stronger as a family. Individually, they experienced the reality of God’s promises.
