About the Book

December 12, 1995 is the day that changed my life forever. That is the day my husband, Jim, and I received the news that he had terminal cancer. We were totally unprepared for this and unprepared for the months that lay ahead—months of waiting, of hope and hopelessness, of surrender, and of seemingly endless decisions. How to Float When You’re About to Sink takes you on a journey through vignettes from specific days and events. Moreover, it shows how anguish and despair can turn into unruffled faith. It is a heart-wrenching and soul-searching story of life and death, written to offer inspiration for others to surrender their strength to God to resolve the mysteries of life. It’s now 2013; many miracles continue, and writing this book is my miracle! This is knowledge that is necessary and more relevant today, eighteen years later, with the healthcare crisis we are experiencing to help and support the patient, caregiver, family, or anyone who is facing a life – threatening health challenge. I pray our story allows others to find hope and celebrate each day as the precious gift that it is with those they love.
