The following information was provided by Donna Ward:
“It is Cancer.” Those three words would send Donna Ward, wife of former major leaguer and current MLB coach Turner Ward, on a terrifying journey. First came the double mastectomy, resulting in overwhelming pain and a body that would not heal. Over the next eight years, Donna would face eleven more surgeries to repair the damage. The constant suffering and exhaustion left her questioning God, whom she had trusted since a child. Yet today she is convinced cancer has been one of the greatest gifts of her life.
Through raw and vulnerable journal entries, Ward takes us on her journey. She uses current narrative sections to speak of what she has learned since writing those words. Her deeply moving story is one of faith in God, love between husband and wife, and hope
Donna and Turner Ward will speak on Thursday, August 27 beginning at 6 p.m. at Page and Palette Bookstore located at 32 S. Section Street in Fairhope, AL. A book signing will take place following. For more information, call 251.928.5295.
WHY THIS BOOK WAS WRITTEN
“Life was predictable, and then, in a moment, everything changed. My stable world became a world of unknown and fear. I have a story that needs to be told. A story of HOPE. A cancer diagnosis followed by 12 surgeries in 7 years has been a journey of pain, suffering, and questioning in the God that I have trusted in, all my life. The cancer has been probably one of the greatest gifts of my life.”
