This post was originally written ten months ago when I was a newbie to the cancer battle and chemotherapy. But revisiting this post this morning, I find that I still agree with the five dimensions listed. Also, I realize that for the last 6 to 7 months I have tended to neglect the physical or bodily dimension … but over the last week or so that has begun to change. Read, consider and comment as so led. Keep up the good fight!

Believing IN Christ Jesus through ALL things

This is very preliminary post where I begin to flesh our something for a lack of a better name I will call ‘The Dimensions of a Cancer Warrior’.  Obviously being one fairly new to the battle against cancer and one longing to be known as a cancer survivor, I don’t have the experience many of you have who are reading the blog and offering comments.

From some reading and just a couple of chemotherapy treatments I am starting to get a bit of a sense of what some of these dimensions might need to be.  I’ll share my thoughts here … they won’t be too fleshed out yet because I am looking for cancer survivor feedback.  Anything you can offer that could assist me would be greatly appreciated.

About bwebbjr

A grandfather, father, husband, man, and a child of God who is following Christ Jesus and working out his salvation with fear and trembling; for it is God who is at work IN me, both to will and to work for His good pleasure (Philippians 2:12-13). I dodged my first bullet with cancer when a cancerous polyp was removed in a sigmoid colectomy surgery in August 2007. Four years later, in the midst of a second colectomy surgery we discovered I had Stage IV metastatic colon cancer. Rather than colectomy surgery I had colostomy surgery, which now means the colostomy bag is a part of my everyday life ... with the emphasis on life. God has given us a peace beyond understanding as my wife and I have traveled this journey. By the grace of God I am blessed to be a 6 plus year cancer survivor aka warrior. In writing, I am often wrestling with my own personal struggles and beliefs and in the midst God leads me to a lesson He wants me to learn ... or sometimes He simply touches me in the revelation of Himself. My hope is that the result you see here might touch your heart and glorify God. And let me be clear ... I am not the only one with something to say. Please join in the conversation sharing your faith, your cancer experiences, etc. I would love to hear from you. Bernie
