“At the very least, maybe this book will give them something to take their mind off things,” Jennifer shared. “I wanted to write letters to fellow cancer patients with the hope that maybe one thing I share might help them with their own journey,” she concluded.

The twenty-eight-year-old wife and young mother had a lot of wonderful things going on when life suddenly threw her a curveball that sent all sense of normalcy, including her plans for herself and her family, off track. “I don’t claim to be a doctor or therapist. I am just a twenty-eight-year-old girl whose life was turned upside down, and I am desperately trying to turn it right-side up,” said Jennifer.

Through Letters to a Cancer Patient, Jennifer shares her desperate fight to live and defeat the monsters that emerged from the darkness brought by her illness. Along with many other hardships, she discusses the loneliness, fear, and brokenness. Jennifer also expresses how she and her loved ones discovered their love for one another, coupled with their faith in God, which are the strongest weapons they can wield, and their toughest shield.
