More About This Book

Overview

After twelve years, sixteen cancer occurrences and counting, Lorie L. Vincent and her husband Mark chronicle their approach to living and thriving during lifelong suffering.

In Fighting Disease, Not Death they go beyond the relentless progression of the disease to describe the anchoring faith that sustains them and gives them a reason to remain in service to others. They compare their decision to fight disease, but not worry about the moment of death, to approaches others take when faced with lifelong suffering. Their critique of these other approaches is gentle but offers each reader a stark reminder that they will collect suffering experiences during their lifetime. Lorie and Mark maintain that it is how each of us builds on our crucibles that makes us remarkable, and gives us opportunity to offer lasting value for those who come after us.

"There is nothing more Earth shattering than to hear the words 'You have metastatic cancer', and with that statement most people bide their time as best they can with the nagging knowledge that time is running out. Even the bravest souls question their fate, but there is a rare ability to keep your mind, body and spirit all in play to help defeat the toughest enemy of your life. Lorie Vincent has this ability.

In nearly 25 years of being a doctor I have never met another individual who has embraced her diagnosis, her faith, her treatments, her family and her fate in such a courageous and graceful fashion. She battles on and on with dignity and poise. Her never-ending wellspring of energy and goodwill recharges her caregivers' batteries as we try to evolve her treatments.

Her story is miraculous, inspiring and not over by a long shot."

-Curtis C. Quinn, MD. Cardiothoracic Surgeon
