Cancer Care

“Cancer can take away all of my physical abilities. It cannot touch my mind, it cannot touch my heart, and it cannot touch my soul.”

Jim Valvano

The "C" Word

The “C” word is probably the most dreaded word any person wants to hear from his/her doctor; however, it doesn’t have to be.

This is why we are presenting a new Cancer Care program through our Anchorage Baptist Temple Recovery program.

We meet every Thursday evening from 7:00 – 9:00pm in Room 113 to listen to people, much like you, who have gone through the same experiences as you are going through.

We have open discussions, questions, and ways to get information that will help you quell your fears and settle you into your “new normal.” Most importantly of all, creating an intimacy with God.

We will be using material from:

  • Challenging Cancer from the American Association of Christian Counselors

  • National Coalition for Cancer Survivorship

  • American Cancer Society

As well as material from many other sources

Topics we will be covering:

  • When the doctor says “it’s cancer”

  • Taking care of business

  • Grieving the loss of the way things were

  • Good days, bad days, and better days

  • Creating intimacy with God and others through difficult times

  • Understanding our differences: Personalities and coping

  • Tough questions cancer survivors ask

  • Living with uncertainty

“Our greatest enemy is not disease, but despair” – Srikanth A Nair

Cancer is so limited...

It cannot cripple love,
It cannot shatter hope,
It cannot corrode faith,
It cannot eat away peace,
It cannot destroy confidence,
It cannot kill friendship,
It cannot shut out memories,
It cannot silence courage,
It cannot invade the soul,
It cannot reduce eternal life,
It cannot quench the Spirit,
It cannot lessen the power of the resurrection
