The Valley of Cancer:
A Journey of Comfort and Hope
"The medical profession often overlooks the important emotional and spiritual dimensions of a life-threatening disease. Angelina takes the reader far past her physical suffering to experience the soul-changing struggles, heartache, and rewards of her valley. The physical, emotional, and spiritual dimensions of overcoming cancer—Angelina brilliantly intertwines all three in this very moving and intimate book."
—Brad Burke, MD. Author of the book series: An MD Examines
"We have all had our valleys to walk through—sometimes alone, sometimes alongside another. In The Valley of Cancer I was brought face to face with the physical reality of life’s dip and swerves and the heart wrenching cries that we often feel no one hears. Angelina stepped into my life shortly after I lost my mother to cancer. Her tender, piercing and clarifying words became music to my bruised heart. She writes from personal experience—yes—but also from a great love for humanity."
—Donna Dawson, author of three novels.
"The Valley of Cancer is a great book to give to individuals who are hurting or afraid. They will be comforted to know that someone else has walked in their footsteps and that no matter how bleak the diagnosis, there is always hope. Angelina shares her story, her worries and questions, then points to the One who dried her tears and held her hand."
—N.J. Lindquist, award-winning author, motivational speaker.
"In The Valley of Cancer, Fast-Vlaar has given to the world a gift of hope. From the first page, I was enthralled, emotionally attached to the work as I wept, laughed and finally rejoiced. I was blessed and comforted reading this book and highly recommend it."
