"Cancer of the spirit" is a debilitating condition that is caused by circumstances, events, or situations that cripple your ability to cope with everyday living. It can be triggered by physical or emotional problems, and disables you to some extent. It temporarily alters who you are, thus having an adverse impact on the way you approach life. Ife
Cancer of the Spirit, the book, weaves ten distinct stories, about the lives of ten women ranging in age from 23 to 79, into a colorful quilt of all-too-human struggles and exhilarating triumphs. It describes the heart wrenching, devastating, or other overwhelming circumstances that caused each woman to develop varying degrees of a condition that trampled her spirit. The stories transcend racial, ethnic, social and political lines, and are somewhat based on the lives of women whose paths the author crossed at some point in her life. Those interactions provided her the kind of real-life experiences evidenced in Cancer of the Spirit. One or more of the women could very easily be you are someone you know. With one exception, all of the stories are fictitious. One story is author's own.
