None of us lives untouched by serious illness or events of great significance. Even when we ourselves are healthy, a friend or family member might be struggling with a difficult diagnosis. When that happens, we find ourselves caught up, praying, caring, providing meals, and offering support. How can such a time be part of a “new beginning”?
Author Cricket Cooper invites us along on her journey as she receives a diagnosis of non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma and begins 18 weeks of chemotherapy — and holiness. After each treatment, Cricket visits a retreat center or place of prayer, intending to be a pilgrim throughout her therapy program.
