breast cancer awareness infographicOctober is Breast Cancer Awareness Month! Did you know that about 1 in 8 US women will develop invasive breast cancer during her lifetime? According to American Cancer Society, breast cancer is the most common cancer among American women (besides skin cancer) and the second leading cause of cancer death. For years, it was labeled a terminal disease, but now thanks to earlier detection and improved treatment, there is a 98% survival rate – that’s more than 2.9 million breast cancer survivors! Early detection is important, so go get tested and improve your chance of survival!

To highlight Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Joni and Friends is offering a free copy of Joni’s new mini book Breast Cancer: Life After Shock with the purchase of the Joni and Friends TV episode Cancer: Joni’s Journey.  If you are battling cancer or know a friend or family member who is, these resources are for you!

He graciously prepared me six months earlier for this journey: a wellness program that changed my eating and exercise habits and His faithfulness as I moved from a spiritual low to spiritual wellness. He had me in the palms of His hands - and, I knew it!! That 'stuff' in my breast was coming out! It didn’t belong. Paul says to give thanks in everything with joy; to pray continually - even when it doesn't make any sense! I have had the honor walking through this journey with great joy, knowing He has me covered. Completely. The cancer is gone. I have learned to take no credit. This cancer was never mine - it was His tool to build me into a child who could radiate His light for others to see. I am so grateful for this experience and the joy I see in others as they witness someone who is healthy and joyful. PS - He has me working on other areas that aren't going as well. I'm saying this so that no one will think I have it all together, because I am far far away from that! This cancer, and only He knows all, has been a boost for others who need to 'see' Him.
