Sandra Slatter

Shadows and Light - Journeying Through Cancer
Previously Published Book

'Cancer' is a word that frightens most of us, but for some it can also take them on a personal and spiritual journey where they are able to once again find the joy in life and a passion to experience it to the fullest.
Sandra Slatter is a cancer sufferer, a bone marrow transplant recipient and a cancer survivor. Through it all, she has had to surrender to the help of her friends and family, her "angels" in order to get through the trauma of difficult and painful medical procedures and the reality of having a life threatening illness. But most of all, she has had to depend on herself and the belief that her faith will keep her strong enough to survive this and move forward to a new and richer life. After all, "It's not about being cured or about dying, it's about appreciating life and those you love and sharing yourself with others and with all the world has to offer".
Shadows and light gives readers the opportuntity to look at their life through different eyes, eyes filled with wonder, forgiveness and hope. It tells of a journey of love and courage and gives insight and hope to those facing not only cancer but the rest of life's dramas.
