Product Description

"Life is dangerous." So begins Letters for Lizzie, a gripping and true story of one couple's fight to survive and do right against overwhelming odds.

Jim and Lizzie O'Donnell seemed to have everything. They had a beautiful home in the Boston suburbs. Jim was successful in the financial services business. They had a lovely summer home in the mountains. They had three sons they loved deeply and whom they could afford to send to private schools. Yet with all life had given them, they yearned to help others. So they gave up the money, the lovely homes, the familiar friends and family who lived nearby, and moved to a little town in Indiana. There, they hoped merely to serve others. They knew money would be tight. They expected life to be unfamiliar and different. But they felt ready for the challenge. Their desire seemed so noble, so worthy. In fact, they felt God had sent them, so they went.

And within three months Lizzie was diagnosed with terminal cancer. Letters for Lizzie is their story of love, friendship, and a battle for life.

Publisher's Description

Having just made a cross-country move, Jim expected that his new assignment from God was to teach in a small college in Indiana. He wasn't prepared for the task of dealing with the onset of his wife's battle for her life. A wide prayer network began. With personal reflections on a painful, years-long ordeal of cancer and heart disease, this book is the compilation of those insights, as well as insights on faith, illness, and healing. A special section gives advice on "how to think" and "what to do" when faced with life-threatening illness. This is a remarkable true story of a husband's love for his sick wife.
