Ep. 84 – Hope with the Roller Coaster of Cancer

Cancer, chronic illness and many hardships can be devastating but you don’t have to be devastated. Focusing your attitude on hope can be challenging during hard times, though studies do prove there are healing benefits. This podcast, “Happiness through Hardship” and this mini-episode speak to how I use hope to help me heal and find a little happiness on the roller coaster ride of cancer, parenting and beyond.
