The inspiring memoir of a young mother fighting breast cancer while pregnant-"an honest, heartfelt journey . . . through self-awareness, self-discovery and life" (Cary MacArthur, Co-Host of Mechanic to Millionaire). At age twenty-nine, Heather Choate was diagnosed with breast cancer. She was also ten weeks pregnant with her sixth child. Her unborn baby was threatened by the fast-spreading cancer that already spread to her lymph nodes. Doctors told her she needed to abort her baby to save her own life. Heather responded: "I'd rather die than take the life of my baby." Together with her husband, Heather was determined to save her baby-and be there to raise it. The journey pushed them to the edge of their stamina, tested the strength of their relationships, and taught them that sometimes faith can be a literal lifeline. Many of us might crumble under such circumstances, but Heather found strength in the knowledge that life isn't merely about what happens to you; it's about what you do when it happens. Fighting for Our Lives will take you on a journey of self-examination and of making the choice to find joy in the present. It's a book that could actually change your life. What you'll learn in Fighting for Our Lives: -Don't just survive challenges, thrive through them -How to use your power of choice, because it's not what happens to you that matters, it's what you do about it -Practical ways that faith sustains and strengthens us -How to deal with doubt and insecurity -The best ways to release negativity and find forgiveness -How to trust your inner voice
