Cancer memoir by Ed and Loretta Williamson gets reviewed by BlueInk Review

Cancer victims will find solace in the couple’s story of enduring love and unwavering faith amid cancer.

Indianapolis IN USA – WEBWIRE

A spirit-filled journey of faith through love, struggle and triumph!

How does one hold onto faith in the midst of cancer? Does God really care when a loved one is diagnosed with cancer, and if He does, how? Readers, particularly those suffering from cancer or other diseases, can find answers and some sense of comfort in “No Other Name: One Couple’s Story of Living with Cancer” (Xulon Press; 2017), a cancer memoir by Dr. Ed Williamson and his late wife Loretta.
The Williamsons’ battle with cancer began when in 1992 when Loretta discovers a lump in her breast, on the night before she underwent a hysterectomy. When the doctor confirmed the diagnosis of cancer, the news shook the couple and tested their faith.
For most cancer victims and their spouses and families, that should have been it. However, Ed and Loretta refused to resign themselves to the symptoms of the diseases and blame God for their predicament. Instead, they took it as an opportunity to deepen their relationship with God.
Ed uses their experience to frame a discussion of divine healing, details the medical methods that helped his wife, and narrates events that led to God’s miraculous intervention to erase cancer. Of course, the narrative puts emphasis on faith.
“Cancer does not determine our daily interchange with people and living life to the fullest,” said Dr. Williamson. “Once the smallest measure of trust is placed in Christ, we can say, ‘Lord, I do not understand Your ways, but You know the way for me.’”
“I am more concerned about my quality of life than I am about the quantity,” Loretta told her physicians. “I am leaving that in God’s hands.”
While Loretta is listed as co-author, it is unclear how much she personally contributed beyond the opening chapter about her childhood. BlueInk Review describes Ed’s work as “perfectly edited, organized and full of biblical evidence to support his claims.”
