    Library Journal

    Where some women diagnosed with breast cancer might rail against a higher power, ministry consultant and author Thompson wants to help women go beyond mere survivorship to "seek and find God's purpose" in their situation. This is a heavily faith-based volume, with daily Scripture and letters to and from God. Most chapters include a "Let's Pray" moment. With blank spaces to personalize the process, this is more of a gift item for women with a strong relationship with God than a library purchase. Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.

    Publisher's Weekly

    Thompson became a breast cancer statistic after a routine mammogram revealed a suspicious spot; doctors confirmed it was cancer. This author, founder of Woman to Woman Mentoring Ministry at Rick Warren's Saddleback Church, experienced the emotional highs and lows, pain and fatigue, and spiritual crisis and victory that come with breast cancer. She shares her story, plus much more, in a book she envisions as "a safe place to document an epic time in your life." Much of her experience is recorded in letters to God, but she also includes the words of others. "Mentoring Moment" sections offer help and advice about the gritty aspects of breast cancer. Most touching is paraphrased Scripture offered as "God's Love Letter to You." Thompson provides both space and encouragement to journal, and her appendices provide valuable resources such as Web sites and recommended reading, as well as space for recording questions, doctor's appointments, medications, contact information and many other details often lost in the trauma and emotion. Thompson's book is a must for any Christian woman facing breast cancer. It's honest, beautiful and cathartic. (Sept. 26) Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.

    ChristianBookPreviews.com

    Janet Thompson, author of Dear God, They Say It’s Cancer, has stocked her newest release chock full of everything a woman needs to journey through breast cancer. Having been down this road herself, she comes alongside others with encouragement, support, and a new angle of perspective.
    At whatever point a woman finds herself, Janet has compiled the things she longed for on her own journey through breast cancer--appropriate Bible passages, prayers, and quotes from others battling this intruder. There’s also space for journaling, note taking, and tracking appointments. Presently heading a speaking and writing ministry titled About His Work ( AWH Publishing), Janet writes to her breast cancer sisters: “Things never seem as scary when you have a friend…I want to walk besides you.”
    While I hope that this is a book you will never need, it is one you will not want to be without if you do face breast cancer. The author doesn’t mince words about Jesus Christ being the strength and salvation of our lives, no matter what we face. However, if I had to start on a journey with breast cancer, I think I’d appreciate a travel size version of this thick volume. – Cheryl A Cecil, Christian Book Previews.com

      I purchased this for my sister in law who was diagnosed with breast cancer May 2011. She took the book with her to the treatment center. She told me she loved the stories and has already started writing in the journal.

      A colleague gave me this book after I had been diagnosed. IT IS WONDERFUL! I circled, underlined, wrote thousands of comments, etc---it helped me through a devastating period of my life. On my celebration date last month, I re-read much of the book and found my comments to be extremely interesting...it is something I will cherish forever. I highly recommend it. I am thankful my colleague purchased it for me!

      I read this book right after I was diagnosed. It is one of the most down to earth books I read on such a personal scary subject. Wonderful practical pointers, for those new to the diagnosis and great spiritual insight. I would also recommend it to any one who has had cancer in the past, still read this! It will help the wounds you still carry to heal.

    Author/Artist Review

    Author: Janet Thompson
    Located in: Lake Forest, CA
    Submitted: October 07, 2007

        Tell us a little about yourself.  I am the founder of Woman to Woman Mentoring and AHW Ministries. I live in Lake Forest, California and am in full-time ministry teaching, training, speaking, and writing. I am married to a wonderful godly man and we have four married children and nine fun and beautiful grandchildren.

        What was your motivation behind this project?  For years I had begged God not to let me be the 1 in 8 women diagnosed with breast cancer. Then when I got the shocking news that it actually was me, I knew that God had been preparing me to accept that I would join this sisterhood, and that He had a plan and purpose for me to use my breast cancer to help others. Soon after completely my treatment I knew what that purpose was..."Dear God, They Say It's Cancer. I had received many technical and personal testimony books that were helpful, but I longed for one book that had words from the Lord to comfort me, snippets of other women's stories, encouragement, mentoring, a place to journal my own story, and a place to keep all the information I was receiving, and to record this epic time in my life. When I saw that a book like that did not exist, I knew I was to write the book I had longed to have.

        What do you hope folks will gain from this project?  The subtitle is my hope and prayer that I and the book would be a companion on the reader's breast cancer journey. I am so blessed when women write me and say that as they read the book, it was as if I was going right through the experience with them. I also hope that my breast cancer sisters can find hope and purpose in their own experience in spite of the horror and devestation that comes with this disease. God has not abandoned us...He is going on the journey with us and I know I couldn't have made it through without the peace the Holy Spirit brings.

        How were you personally impacted by working on this project?  I cried as I wrote the first half of the book and didn't see how I could possibly finish it. But then I had a breakthrough. There actually was a catharsis in writing about it and getting my feelings out, which is why I included lots of journaling and note taking space throughout the book. I know if the reader can pour out her heart to the Lord through journaling, she will experience the same freedom from the pain and grief that I did.

        Anything else you'd like readers / listeners to know:  I am just coming up to my 5 year celebration. It seemed like such a long time away when I was diagnosed, and yet, I stand on the brink of that very important doctor's appointment. I will never take my life, or the life of my dear friends and family for granted because I know that we all will reach the end of our earthly days, maybe with little warning. But as the last chapter of the book says, the end is just the beginning. And for those of us who know Jesus as our Lord and Savior, that beginning will be a new life with Jesus. With the days He has given me I hope to continue using my life experiences to mentor others. With God at the center of our life we can withstand any storm and not just survive but thrive!
