Using the story of her breast cancer diagnosis, Nicole Johnson offers her readers insights for dealing with major losses of all kinds while extending genuine hope to those stuck in despair.
"Finding out I had cancer was like going to sleep in my own bedand suddenly waking up in the middle of a boxing ring. Out of theclear blue I am standing toe-to-toe with the HeavyweightChampion of the World, the crowd is looking on, and I am in mypajamas and don't even know how to throw a punch."
Stepping into the Ringis the 2002 Women of Faithdrama sketch by Nicole Johnson, possibly her most powerful piece of writing to date.
"Women have always had a unique fellowship of suffering," Nicole says. Where is the woman old or young who will not shed a tear and silently scream in her heart as she walks in these pages through the diagnosis of breast cancer and the devastation that ensues? This is a "must" read for breast cancer patients and their loved ones.
