Cancer, Prayer & Survival
A piece from April 15th 2009 from the archives looking at the power of faith and prayer in overcoming cancer.
‘Sean was 23 years old, we were three months married and his wife was dying’ is a sentence in the opening chapter of a short book, Cancer, Prayer and Survival by Mary McDonnell. Each chapter in the book describes a new disappointment, a different shock, how Mary coped and what she learned about herself and her relationship with God. Eileen Good met Mary and asked her first how Sean was told that his new wife had leukaemia.
