Depression

People who are battling a serious illness or loss are especially prone to depression. Caregivers and family members are also at risk. The chemicals that keep our brain functioning can become depleted during times of stress. Depression is the result of a chemical depletion and is a legitimate medical problem- not a spiritual problem.

Anger

Anger – normally seen as a negative emotion – is not an uncommon companion on the journey through the valley of suffering .

Fear

The waves of fear faced by those who battle cancer can be overwhelming, sometimes even debilitating. But life goes on despite our fears. So when we feel fear’s clammy grip, what can we do?

Pain

No one wants to suffer – no one enjoys suffering – it is even worse when we are taken by surprise – blindsided by the painful trial – there is no perfect time to fit suffering into your schedule.

FIND HOPE

If you feel lost in the darkness of a strange and unknown place – be assured there is a hope that will not lead you to disappointment!
