Hope Aguilar knows what it means to hope against the odds. Her fight with cancer taught her that her Christian faith was sometimes the only thing keeping her hope alive. The book that documents her journey in dealing with ovarian cancer, 'HOPE through cancer', is not only meant to bring awareness to this disease but also to help others who are struggling with their own cancer situation.
The book recounts Hope Aguilar's battle with ovarian cancer and her realizations as she struggled with this disease. The book points out that it is very important for people not to be so afraid of cancer that they do not listen to their own bodies. She also recounts how her family and friends were there for her during her illness and how important it is for cancer patients to have a strong support system.
Most importantly, however, Aguilar wants people to understand the role that faith plays in fighting serious illnesses like cancer. "I called the book 'HOPE through cancer' with 'hope' in all capital letters for a reason," says Aguilar. "It was because I want people to understand that this book is not about me, Hope, but about having HOPE for the future through faith, even when the future seems dark. It was my faith as a Christian in the cross of Jesus that kept me strong."
Hope points out that "the Big C" has been made too important in our world. "When I was ill, my mom told me that it was not the 'Big C' but the 'little c.' That we should not allow it to scare us or give it too much power."
Instead of investing power in the cancer, Hope Aguilar credits her faith in Jesus as the power that pulled her through her illness. 'HOPE through cancer' is her testimony that faith, along with the love and support of family and friends can help cancer victims recover and even triumph over their illnesses.
HOPE Through Cancer will be released June 27, 2014, through Next Century Publishing.
