My Cancer Story

Cancer Hope

Embrace [em-breys], verb–to take or clasp in the arms; press to the bosom; to take or receive gladly or eagerly; to avail oneself of: to take in with the eye or the mind.

Hope [hohp],noun–the feeling that what is wanted can be had or that events will turn out for the best

If you’re facing circumstances that are truly devastating, I pray you’ll be encouraged and join me in discovering how to place our hope in the One who will truly never fail.

  1. I don’t have cancer. . But this pot this blog spoke to me.. I felt so lost… it’s hard when you have such Good God plans… and thankyou… wow thankyou

    1. Dorothy, I’m so glad God used my words to speak to you. I pray you continue to feel His presence and follow His leading. ~Blessings, Nancy

  2. Hi. My name is Lee. I was diagnosed with IDC Stage 3 breast cancer shortly before Christmas 2016. No one in my family has ever been diagnosed with breast cancer. So far I have had 2 treatments. My hair is thinning and kind of hanging on by threads. My family is as supportive as they can be. My daughter just got married. My mom needs home healthcare, so not much she can do. Very few friends. Sometimes I feel alone, but I know better than that. Just want to identify with someone who has been through it. Glad I came across your blog.

    1. Lee, I’m so sorry to hear of your diagnosis. I am praying for you. If you are looking for a community of women who understand what you are going through, you need to visit It is a fabulous ministry for women who are battling all types of cancer. Please reach out to them; you can even request prayer on their prayer wall. Blessings, Nancy

  3. Hi
    Just reciently diagnosed. I have a ton of thick hair, second chemo treatment was this morning. Using the digi cap, unsure it will work to save most of my hair. No guarantees. No uncontrollable itching but in the shower there was more hair loss.
    I had planned to donate my hair 1 1/2 years ago, and hair is almost there.

    1. Hi Sue, I’m so sorry to hear you’re going through this. Praying for you…for complete healing in your body and for emotional strength in the process.

  4. Good morning/afternoon/evening Nancy (depending on the corner of the world you are at).

    The Lord has led me to your series as I searched the Internet for “How to Hope in God’s Word!”
    As a Church, our theme for the Year 2019 is, “Rejoicing in Hope!” Roman 12:12 and our focus for November 2019 is “Hope in the Word”.

    I have been blessed as I read through some of your write up on “Embracing Hope!”

    Thank you for sharing your journey of faith.
    Thank you for being open and practical!
    Thank you for honouring & trusting God!

    By God’s grace, I will be praying for you and I know you pray for all whom God lead’s to your ‘corner’.

    You are more than a conqueror!
    The name of Jesus is higher than the name of cancer & by His stripes, you are healed!

    God Bless
