Chase Away Cancer by Ellie Poole Ewoldt
You may think you know how this cancer story goes. The characters: a little boy, a loving family, the team of doctors. The diagnosis: terminal, little hope for a cure. There are two possible outcomes. Will his family be plunged into extreme sorrow or miraculous joy?
What if the answer was both?
Ellie Poole Ewoldt debuts with a memoir of desperate hope and fierce love; of a family who refused to give up even when they heard the worst possible news for their two-year-old son, Chase. Moment by moment, the Ewoldts faced brain surgery and chemo, spinal taps and transfusions. And yet, the true miracle lay not in the medicine or Chase’s prognosis—rather, Chase’s life shows us the miracle of hope, even through the darkest nights. If there is anything he and the Ewoldts have learned, it is that God is always good and will stay at your side through every moment, no matter what it holds.
You’ll fall in love with Chase through his story and be inspired to help chase away cancer—for this headstrong boy, his fighting friends, and all those in your own life who need hope for whatever tomorrow may bring.

Finding Light in Cancer’s Shadow By Lynn Eib
Coping with cancer is sometimes more emotionally difficult after treatment than during it. There’s a shadow of cancer hanging overhead and so few who really understand survivors’ unique needs. With her trademark humor and straight talk, patient advocate Lynn Eib takes on the tough questions cancer survivors often ask themselves yet rarely speak out loud: Is everyone as paranoid as I am? How do I stay positive? What if the cancer comes back? Eib weaves the story of her own experience as a longtime cancer survivor and those of other survivors into this hope-filled, practical book designed to move readers out from cancer’s shadow and into renewed purpose and joy.
You’ve just heard a diagnosis that shakes your world: It’s cancer. And what you long for most is the hope that everything will be okay. You are not alone. As a longtime cancer survivor, Lynn Eib knows firsthand how that feels. And as a patient advocate helping thousands facing cancer, she also knows what gives people hope. In 50 Days of Hope , Lynn shares amazing, true stories of those who have been in your shoes and discovered that when God and cancer meet, hope is never far away. Whether you’re a cancer patient or walking with a loved one on a cancer journey, you’ll find 50 Days of Hope packed with the daily dose of encouragement you need.
