from Baptists Today Mar 26, 2002
"A two-time cancer survivor describes his struggles with the disease as a roller-coaster ride, complete with unexpected dips and loops and turns. Writing with fear of the unknown but hope for the future - wherever that may be - Rusty Freeman speaks candidly of his journey. Based on the assurance of Scripture, these meditations, prayers and poems offer encouragement to patients whether facing a new diagnosis, surgery, chemotherapy, raditaion, or remission. From negative thoughts in "Assuming the Worst,""Lowering Expectations,""Angry with God,""Tired of Surviving," and "Emotionally Handicapped Friends" to the postive tones of "Joy is a Choice" and "Almost There," the author urges readers to make their suffering a blessing to others and in the process to find personal healing." - reviewed in Baptists Today, July 2001
from The Living Church Mar 26, 2002
"Brief reflections on a host of topics dealing with the unique experiences of being a cancer patient. An excellent section on "Emotionally Handicapped Friends" and the need to have friends cry with you without fear of upsetting anyone." - a review from Then Living Church magazine, July 23, 2000
An Uplifting Book Jul 10, 2000
Rusty Freeman, pastor of Johnstown Presbyterian Church, and a two-time cancer survivor, offers prayers, poetry, scripture, and meditations helpful to anyone, but particularly written for cancer patients. In his introduction Freeman reminds us that 4 things....not 2... are with us also. Death and taxes come, and also trials and the love of God can be counted on! Somewhere in the book we are told that whether we're facing a fresh diagnosis, a surgery, chemotherapy or even struggling with remission, this book is for us. I believe it!! Continually we are reminded that God loves us and is with us throughout our trials.
