Praying For A Miracle When It’s Hopeless – One woman’s battle with cancer
A story of extreme battles and overwhelming faith by Isabella Milan
Have you ever been given news that made you feel as if you were a prisoner sentenced to death? That was my initial feeling when I was told I had Breast Cancer with metastasis to my brain, that my husband wanted a divorce, and that I needed to fight for custody of my son. Suddenly, my days seemed endless and my nights were tiresome. To many, this would seem as if the days were numbered. But I held the strength to overcome this diagnosis and major life setbacks.
Money was low, I found myself states away, couch surfing while on SSI, and was unsure of the next steps. Through prayer, hope and the work of God, I was able to change my mindset and how I handled the situations placed before me. I learned these were just roadblocks in life’s path. Tough days are expected, and trials will come, but it is how you handle it that sets you apart from the rest.
The story that you are about to read is one of what helped me over-come this very rocky road: praying, strength, and survival. The experience left me broken, in despair and absent of hope. Become engrossed in the pages as I rediscover my purpose. My ability to hope again. Live again. Dream again.
Duffy’s Thoughts On Praying For A Miracle When It’s Hopeless
Wow, Isabella Milan really did go from having a princess dream life of financial security, success and privilege to utter despair. If Praying For A Miracle When It’s Hopeless was a work of fiction, it would be deemed as just too much. However, Isabella’s story is real, and the fact that she has come out the other side with a stronger faith and a resolve to help others who may be going through some or all of her problems is really something.
Be ready, this is not an easy read, but it is a real-life journey of overcoming the seeming death sentence of cancer and life turned completely on its head. There is so much to unpack as we follow Isabella’s journey that sometimes I feel important moments are skipped over to get to the next chapter. It’s almost as if there are two stories here running in tandem. On of a woman’s fight for her son, independence and freedom and the other a more personal and devastating journey of breast cancer survival.
“One day, I was a beaming bride, an overly enthusiastic first-time mother, and the next day just as if the good days never existed. I was sitting in my own urine, in a diaper and in a wheelchair unable to communicate, in an airport in California waiting for my mum to pick me up.” – Praying For A Miracle When It’s Hopeless.
