Venecia Butler is a three-time breast cancer survivor, currently waging her fourth battle with cancer since 2006. In I Have to Get Some Things off My Chest, Venecia shares her experiences with breast cancer thus far. She uses humor, love, and faith in God as her guides in order to provide a candid account of the ups and downs of her journey.
Venecia takes us through her life from the first diagnosis to her most recent treatments. To set the scene for her tenacious battle with cancer, she tells the story of sitting in a metal chair in the middle of a thunderstorm while “counseling with God” as she pondered the decision about whether to go through chemotherapy. Drawing courage from her faith, she talks about the effects that cancer has had on her family as she tries to beat the odds that come with this disease. She points to God as her guidepost and highlights the strength He has given her to face some of the most difficult moments imaginable.
Venecia’s continuing faith is encouraging to women who might be in the midst of their own battle with cancer. I Have to Get Some Things off My Chest also offers tips and advice on how to laugh through the experience, because for the author, lighthearted times are essential on the road to recovery.
