Though the Road is Long, You Don’t Have to Walk Alone

There’s nothing easy about having cancer. For most people, cancer is a hard, reluctant journey through rugged, unfamiliar terrain. Ultimately, however, there are really only two ways to face cancer: in our own strength or with the help and strength that God supplies.

Strength for the Cancer Journey provides empathetic, daily reminders that God is present for anyone facing the challenges of cancer. Each of these thirty devotionals draws upon anecdotes and insights from God’s Word to help readers invite God into the realities, uncertainties, and frustrations of their cancer experience. While cancer is a journey no one wants to take, no one ever has to walk that road alone. This devotional book will help both patients and caregivers to engage deeply with God, gaining new strength for the cancer journey.

What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

Praise for Strength for the Cancer Journey

If you know of someone who has cancer, Strength for the Cancer Journey will be a welcomed gift. I would encourage churches to give this book to every member who is diagnosed with cancer. It is a wonderful way of expressing love and care for anyone who is on the “cancer journey.”
Author of The 5 Love Languages®

No one wants to hear the word cancer. I was not prepared for it—the uncertainty, the depression. In Strength for the Cancer Journey, Debbie Barr weaves the reflections of other cancer patients with her God-centered perspective, giving us courage and hope to walk this journey with Christ.

Seven-year prostate cancer survivor

Debbie Barr's writing provides biblically sound encouragement for anyone walking on or alongside someone on a journey with cancer. These devotionals help to provide perspective, comfort, and peace during a time that can be filled with uncertainty. It is a great reminder that God cares for us and is in control.

Breast cancer

I'm a thirteen-year survivor of an incurable cancer, multiple myeloma. As a cancer patient and author, I have deeply appreciated this devotional by Debbie Barr. She normalizes the unique feelings we have when fighting our disease. At times, I could feel her walking alongside, reminding me I am not alone, others have been where I am . . . and more importantly, the Lord is with me.

Cancer stirs an interest in faith like no other disease in my experience. Debbie's book of devotions is comforting and uplifting in its choice of scriptures and anecdotes.
Greensboro, North Carolina
Non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma

The common thread woven throughout each devotional that Debbie shared is that God is writing each one’s story. The most exquisite work may not be completely revealed until one day when we recognize what He was accomplishing during those days that were the darkest. As you digest each devotional, may you better understand the depth of spiritual growth that comes from greater intimacy with Him.
McMurray, Pennsylvania
Liver and stage 4 bone cancer

Through this devotional Debbie has touched so many areas that need to be faced during the journey of fighting cancer! She weaves together God's heart and healing words of truth that address raw emotions and fears. I was blessed and encouraged as she reminds the reader to "Look Up!" to where our help comes from (Psalm 121:1–2).
