Healed through Cancer by James Littleton is a treasure trove of faith, scripture quotes, and brotherly advice, as well as a personal account of one man’s journey through cancer and the fruits of that journey. With depth and understanding, Littleton takes his readers through the physical, spiritual, and emotional “valley of death” as he learns of his Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia cancer diagnosis, decides upon and endures various treatments, and wrestles with the issues of living his faith through this experience. In Healed through Cancer, the reader will read moving diary posts that contain wit and wisdom, and consider life’s big questions in relationship to suffering, such as the age-old query, “Why ME?” Littleton also addresses the general question that has plagued man from the beginning of time—why is there suffering in the world and what is its use? In Healed through Cancer, Littleton: -shares the four greatest gifts parents can give their children -offers concrete suggestions for those plagued with worry -suggests how the role of the sacraments, particularly the sacrament of Confession, aids in total healing -explains the potent power of prayer using an analogy of donating blood Imagery is rich and examples are many in this chronicle of faith and fortitude. The author includes an appendix with an examination of conscience and passages of scripture that address healing. Littleton stresses that nothing happens without God’s permitting it, and that suffering, when united to Christ’s on the Cross, can be redemptive. His story of faith and hope will encourage the cancer stricken, buoy their families, and give faith and light to a suffering world.

When my wife Kathy and I saw James and Kathleen Littleton on EWTN Live telling the story of Better by the Dozen, Plus Two, about their wonderful family of nineteen children (fourteen living), we were impressed. When, a couple of years later, I received an invitation to review James Littleton’s Healed through Cancer and Other Adversities, I was delighted. Now that I’ve finished reading it, I am very much honored and grateful as well. Healed through Cancer and Other Adversities is a powerful, moving, loving, and very important book. In sharing the story of how he and his family have been impacted by his diagnosis with a particularly aggressive form of Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia, James Littleton has crafted a book full of joyful, charitable lessons for us all. Far from a sorrowful tome, this book pulls no punches in recounting suffering, but explains with care, wisdom, and humor how it is all worthwhile. Healed through Cancer and Other Adversities is also a paean of gratitude to God for marriage, parenthood, family life, and all of our abundant blessings. It is a courageous testimony to all human life. You will read, for example, how the author, due to his unyielding respect and love of life, refused to participate in two experimental treatment methods that would have required the use of artificial birth control methods. Healed through Cancer and Other Adversities is a bountiful resource for those who would understand the meaning of suffering and illness as explained in the scriptures and the teachings of the Catholic Church. Note well the through in the title. James shows how God can use even cancer as a means of spiritual healing. Far from embracing victimhood, Littleton provides hope for the ill and encourages the afflicted themselves to continue to be “pourers,” pouring out their love and encouragement to others. I recommend this book without reservation to anyone suffering from cancer or any serious illness or trial, to their family and friends, and to any reader who would care to profit from the heartfelt wisdom and joy of a man who has been blessed with so many good things, and with difficult things as well.
