In this episode we cover:
What the course of cancer treatment/recovery looks like from the viewpoint of the caregiver.
What can become of a “medicine meets ministry” moment in your life.
How a life-threatening diagnosis can change the trajectory of your entire family.
How your pain can become your passion and be used to bless others.
How to pivot when the seasons in your life change.
