Joyce Hutchison held fast to faith. A pioneer in the hospice movement, with thirty-five years of devotion in oncology, hospice and palliative care, it was simply unbelievable when she received a diagnosis of stage four lung cancer. Ever the caretaker, Joyce came to the realization that she wanted to share her journey in order "to assist those in...the most difficult stage of life".
In sixteen chapters, Hutchison meets her challenges, sharing the physical, emotion and mental details of each. Despite her suffering, Hutchison held fast to her faith, summoning her reserves to share as family and friends supported her. She described her experience of God's love in a new way.
A foreword and afterword by Joyce Rupp provide context for the book and relate the circumstances of Hutchison's death on May 7, 2016, and the Mass of the Ressurection that followed.
