"The writing experience has helped me grow emotionally and spiritually. God gave me the book I always wanted to write. Writing a book had always been my life's dream. It may not have been the story I dreamt of writing, but it was Gods story and I had to be faithful. The writing process was also healing to a mountain of open wounds I had from the doctors that bullied me and from the daunting chemo that I had to endure. My story is a powerful tale, and writing it after I lived through it helped me see it in a different light. A light that gave me hope and showed me my own bravery," said Christine Handy, author of the nationally best-selling book Walk Beside Me.
