For most of my life my approach to cancer has been that of a spectator. Despite my genuine compassion for those afflicted to whom I have endeavoured to minister, I was always an outsider looking-in.
Last year, that all changed for me, when I was diagnosed with lymphoma, and was then subjected to ongoing months of treatment as a result. While that series of experiences by no means makes me an authority on this form of illness, it does afford me some worthwhile appreciation of the many emotional and spiritual challenges that you or a loved one might go through, should you be presently living with cancer or if you do so in the future.
