Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 141411446X, Paperback)

Becky always believed that when trials came, faith kicked in and you were able to soar above the events. But when she was diagnosed with breast cancer and then uterine cancer two months later-that did not happen. Faced with multiple surgeries and chemotherapy and radiation treatments, she found herself questioning God,struggling with the possibility of death, and secretly wondering if she had done something to make God mad. Becky's brother John, a psychotherapist from Detroit, reconnected with her and began an e-mail campaign of support and encouragement. Green Grass in the Junkyard documents this correspondence. It is a powerful book that will help you enjoy each day, even when you feel that life is not going the way that you had hoped. "With absolute honesty, Becky and John have laid-bare their hearts during a truly challenging time of their lives. Their journey through doubt, despair, hope, and faith serve as tremendous encouragement to those on a similar path-both cancer patients, and those who love them." - Christina S. Chu, M.D., Jordan Center for Gynecologic Cancer, University of Pennsylvania "Drs. Overholt and Canine have brought a great perspective, and a new one, to the complex subject of learning to live with, enduring, and then mastering the troubled times that the diagnosis of cancer can bring into the lives of patients and families.TThe undeniable value of faith, will, introspection, and most importantly, a loving sibling, is expressed masterfully in this book. We all have so much to learn; there is treasure here for those for whom illness has provoked a new quest for knowledge and peace." - Kevin R. Fox, M.D., MacDonald Professor of Medicine, Abramson Cancer Center, University of Pennsylvania
