In 1995, Evelyn Pettie Reid learned she had cancer. Dissatisfied with her doctor's answers to her questions, she chose not to receive chemotherapy, a decision her doctor warned would cost her her life. Instead, Reid decided to take responsibility for her own healing, with God's help. Through educating herself about healthful living and constantly strengthening her faith in the Lord, Reid reached a state of wholeness that she enjoys to this day. In Cancer: A Sentence to Live, Reid shares her personal journey, complete with the information she discovered through research, detailed lists of dietary supplements, and even some of her morning devotionals. Her advice ranges from the importance of praying with members of one's faith community to the importance of really tuning in and listening to one's body. Taking a holistic approach, she encourages readers to take care of not only their physical selves but also their souls, so that any obstacles to healing might be removed. A cancer diagnosis can be frightening, confusing, and depressing, and it can be tempting to give in to passivity and even despair. Reid shows readers another way. By sharing her experience and the fruits of her research, she aims to empower others so that they too might put their trust in God, educate themselves, and find the will to fight for life. A cancer diagnosis need not be a death sentence, Reid says; rather, it is a wakeup call to get busy and get healthy!
