Chase Away Cancer-Book Review

This is a very inspiring book about living each day to the fullest.  Very few of us do that. We take life for granted almost completely–until we are struck with a health crisis or tragedy that will shake us out of our comfort levels.

This is a story about cancer survival. However, in the midst of the diagnosis and suffering, the family gets closer and grows stronger, and the young boy in this story especially grows up to be strong and resilient.

The characters in this story are about a little boy, a loving family and a team of dedicated and compassionate doctors. The diagnosis for the little boy was that his cancer was terminal. However, as the family is plunged into absolute sorrow and they don’t seem to know what they did to deserve this, there is also a lot of joy along the way.

For a long time, there was no rest from the reality of cancer from Chase. But in the midst of all of this stress and turmoil there was a peace that came from trusting that God knew things we didn’t about Chase’s life and made promises that He would faithfully keep, even though the keeping of them looking nothing like what we had imagined. This was the only way that the family could carry on, and carry on they did resolutely and in fate.

Chase did receive his miraculous healing from God, and the family did continue onwards but very different ideals and purpose. Their whole meaning of life changed and it became very much more rewarding and resilient than it was before. Never again did any of them take anything for granted and they enjoyed every moment.

I loved the book from beginning to end!
