Breast cancer affects 1 in 9 women over the course of a lifetime. In August, 2008 Dr. Sealy was diagnosed with locally advanced breast cancer. This is the story of crisis, survival and healing after 10 months of treatment and another year of recovery. The family suffered individually and collectively. Spiritual care helped the family heal from the physical and the emotional cancer in their lives. Dr. Sealy's book is an honest and open account of a woman and her family's struggle with cancer. The journaling of her own passion story in terms of Christ's passion has a long history in Christian spirituality. I have no doubt that Pat's story will resonate emotionally and spiritually with other cancer sufferers, their families and caregivers. Dr. Sealy's story is a courageous journey from death to life-through pain and suffering to hope-by a cancer survivor who has discovered a deeper appreciation and understanding of life. - Rev.
