Product Description

Cancer confronts us with our mortality. But cancer survivors find ourselves with a second chance for life. We grapple with profound questions: Why am I still here? How did I survive when others didn't? Where is God in all this? And how should I live differently now?

Those who survive cancer live in bonus time, a season of grace that can be both disorienting and wonderful. Two-time survivor Alex Hill helps readers recalibrate expectations, grapple with survivor's guilt, and steward the opportunities for new purpose and growth. As counterintuitive as it may seem, cancer can transform us emotionally and spiritually into better people.

We are not the people we were before. Survivors and caregivers can discover how encouraging death can bring us to a different kind of life.
