Ep. 21 – Marissa Henley; Breast Cancer, Fear, & Book Giveaway
Meet Marissa, a mom and writer, who was diagnosed with angiosarcoma, a type of breast cancer. Understandably, she experienced an incredible amount of shock and fear after diagnosis. Would treatment work? Would her family have to learn to live without her? In the midst of the uncertainty, Marissa went to Houston for treatments, surgery, and clinical trials while her family stayed at home. Now that Marissa is in remission, she chooses to continue to trust in God’s character and his faithfulness. It has not been an easy journey, but Marissa chooses to be brave by encouraging others with her story through her writing.
