A Gift of Joy is a mother's loving story of her daughter's battle with stage-IV colon cancer; an inspirational story that takes the emphasis off the fears of cancer to concentrate on acceptance, bravery, courage, discovery, happiness, humor, love, strength and JOY! Sherry Spurlock was a writer, so it was natural for family and friends to encourage her to write about her cancer journey. Her answer to them was always, "Why would I want to waste my time thinking about something I can't control. Mom can write the book. I want to take time to try some new things and enjoy my life.” Sherry was never her cancer. She was a radiant smile, a fresh sense of humor; her beauty permeated all aspects of her life and will live on through her writings and the lives of those she has touched. Sherry fought so courageously with such grace for three years and never complained. When she was at her weakest, she lived with such courage and strength. When her life was at its most difficult, she lived her life in the most positive way. This book is filled with Sherry's life, her voice, her ever-present sense of humor, and remembrances from those who knew and loved her. Her incredible example of living life when it really mattered leaves a legacy that will encourage and inspire anyone faced with life-threatening cancer or adversity of any kind.

About the Author:

Agnes Spurlock was born in rural Kentucky and moved to Norwood, Ohio when she was 8 years old. She was fortunate to have loving parents who were wonderful examples of common sense and perseverance who taught their children the importance of giving back. She considers herself lucky to have grown up in a more innocent time during the 50s and 60s in a community where friends remain friends for life. As an active volunteer for fifty years, she has been recognized by various organizations for her volunteer service and recently was inducted into her high school alumni association hall of fame as a Distinguished Alumni. Agnes enjoyed a successful non-profit career in volunteer management and speaking part-time to women about seeking to live a life in balance. Just starting to enjoy retirement, her life was turned upside down when her oldest daughter was diagnosed with cancer. A Gift of Joy tells a beautiful story of a special mother-daughter relationship of lessons learned and of leaving no words left unsaid during an inspirational journey of acceptance, courage and living life when it really matters. Agnes and her husband live a quiet lifestyle in Cincinnati, Ohio, where they recently downsized and are experiencing a new freedom living with less stuff. They enjoy spending time with their family and friends, have everything they need and are just minutes away from their youngest daughter, son-in-law and two grand-daughters. Now fulfilling her lifelong passion to write, Agnes is working on her next book about removing emotional and physical clutter and downsizing one’s life to find contentment and peace. If you liked this book, please take a few minutes and leave a short review at Amazon.com. I would really appreciate your feedback. Thank you so much.
