Reviews - What do our customers think?
The difference between hope and despair  Mar 17, 2010
The Bible tells us that God is the God of all comfort (2. Corinthians 1:3). In her book "Hope for the Journey through Cancer," Yvonne Ortega brings that concept to life as she walks with readers every step of the way, sharing her own experiences and bringing them back to the Word of God. Each devotion begins with a "Hope Builder" - a passage of Scripture which readers are to look up in their own Bibles. I LOVE that Yvonne directs us to the Bible as the very first thing. Those with cancer will be able to relate to every devotion in the book. Yvonne mixes humor with profound truths, bringing hope to all who read. Her own story is amazing, but she is not the center of the book. God is. And you are--that is your faith and hope through thsi incredible journey. (If you don't have cancer, count your blessings but purchase this book for those you know who do!)
From another cancer survivor...  Jun 26, 2009
Oh, how I wish I'd had this excellent book forty years ago when I was diagnosed with cancer! A young wife and mother, pregnant with my second child, I was devastated and terrified of what the cancer diagnosis meant to me and my family. Thank God for Yvonne Ortega, who has written this book with such humility and candor, offering hope to those who so desperately need it. An excellent resource!

"Cancer." Even the word strikes fear in the human heart. No other disease affects the human spirit so deeply. Unlike other diseases where the body wears out or is attacked, cancer is the human body turning upon itself. Oncology patients often wrestle with their mortality, the pain of broken dreams, and a need to understand the causes of human suffering. All of these questions naturally lead to a spirituality quest.

In her new book, Hope for the Journey Through Cancer, Yvonne Ortega takes on the role of a spiritual guide. Ortega has been down this road. In 2001, she was diagnosed with breast cancer. In Hope for the Journey Through Cancer, she cleverly retells her story in 60 short devotionals. She documents her fears, anger, devastation, and joys as she battles cancer. Each devotional starts with a recommended passage of scripture for personal reflection and proceeds to connect that passage to an experience that Ortega had during her journey. Each devotional is ended with a short prayer. Ortega's writing style is open and honest. The reader can feel her emotions as moved down the road of cancer. She takes her reader with her as she is stunned by her diagnoses, depressed while shopping for a wig, and even when she wrestles with wither to have chemotherapy. Ortega's journey is not white washed. She displays her weaknesses. The reader can clearly view her fears, anger, devastation, and joy as she battles cancer.

The advantages of the book are many. First, Ortega has a universal writing style. While she is specifically a breast cancer survivor her story is applicable to a vast variety of oncology patients. Her book potentially has the possibility of assisting family and friends to understand this overwhelming journey. In addition to her universal appeal, she discusses most of the traditional treatment options available to cancer patients. She underwent surgery, chemotherapy, and radiation. The devotionals are arranged chronologically, so a patient can probably find a devotional that parallels his or her own journey. Last of all, the book should be praised for its honesty. Ortega invites patients and families to join her on this journey and she selflessly opens up her own life as a picture of that journey through cancer.

missing help  Aug 11, 2008
like a cancer patient misses a piece of themselves, any person supporting a cancer patient loses themselves. to the process.
this devotional helps any and all through the process. the grief-striken, yet hope-producing process. Kudos to Yvonne for putting the hope on paper for the rest of us.
Hope for the Journey Through Cancer  Jul 2, 2008
It is an excellant book. It gives the cancer patient a feeling that he/she is not alone in her feelings. It really helps give hope and a feeling of companionship.
