How do Cancer Companions books and videos improve your Christian cancer support group or Bible Study?
If you attend a cancer support group at your hospital, that’s great for getting the encouragement and companionship you need from others coping with cancer. However it is uncommon for these group to focus on topics which strengthen your faith. If you attend a Bible study at your church about the book of John or how to be a better parent that’s great for getting the scriptural guidance and fellowship you need to strengthen your faith. However it’s uncommon for these groups to provide the focus on topics concerning your cancer journey.
What Cancer Companions materials create is a place you do BOTH: you talk about what Jesus is up to with your cancer journey as you explore what scriptures have to say about the topics important to your cancer journey.
