This news comes from Diane at Wings for Injured Athletes. It’s an amazing effort:
Guardian angels often appear most when and where least expected, but most often when they are needed most. They remind us that life is good and there are those out there who care. It was with those sentiments in mind that non-profit Wings for Injured Athletes, Inc. was started and spread its wings in 2011 with the creation of a “Cancer, One Day At A Time,” inspirational book.
All of us could use a little motivation at some point in our lives, and cancer survivors are extremely adept at providing that inspiration. The “Cancer, One Day At A Time” book includes insightful, thought provoking and stimulating quotes from cancer survivors, cancer patients and cancer caregivers from all over the United States and as far away as Australia, Mexico and north of the border in Canada. The passages are humorous, entertaining, educational and heartfelt.
The book brings awareness to all forms of cancer, and it is a great resource. A portion of the funds raised will be donated to a variety of cancer causes and charities. It also allows those who have experienced cancer firsthand to share their struggles, successes, losses and thoughts. There is a great deal of therapy in sharing and power in words. When that distribution is in print, it is enduring.
It is true that angels come to us disguised. Wings for Injured Athletes, Inc. hopes that with its Caring for Cancer book, it is one angel that many will recognize.
