Cancer doesn’t get to swallow your days and your nights. It doesn’t get to put stress in your life or plague you with fear. It doesn’t get to come between you and your loved ones and it doesn’t get to come between you and your God. For many, these emotional and spiritual cancer battles can be as difficult as the physical battles. In short, cancer does not get to be more important than the most important things in your life. The most important things in your life are the things you can use to push the cancer back so you can breathe again.
” The hardest part of coping with the cancer was being afraid I wouldn’t see my children grow up – being afraid of the financial strain it would put on my family.”
– Pam Cancer Survivor
Jesus is a master at pushing back the chaos of cancer for everyone. Whether you have drawn close to Him since childhood, wandered from the comfort of His presence, or know Jesus only as an acquaintance or stranger, it doesn’t matter. Jesus sees you as His precious child and He is with you now. He is closer than your breath. Whether sitting in the chemo room or waiting for your scan results, Jesus is with you.
As a believer in Christ, you may know that through life or death, Christ is always with you. But please also know this: Jesus has much more to offer you than the certainty of your salvation. Beyond being your Savior, I pray you come to know Jesus as:
- the rock that holds you when you’re weak.
- the arms that lift you from the depth.
- the light that flickers in your darkness.
- the voice that soothes you in the silence.
Jesus is all you need and more.
” Cancer Companions showed me not to settle for living with my cancer ‘pretty well’ but to live with it even better.”

Wherever you are in your relationship with Jesus, He wants you to come even closer. Listen to this promise from God:
Come near to God and He will come near to you. James 4:8
Just think of that! The closer you draw to God, the closer the Lord God Almighty, maker of heaven and earth, will come to you! I pray that this program provides a path for you to draw closer to God in the chaos called cancer.
