Chase Away Cancer by Ellie Ewoldt

You may think you know how this cancer story goes. The characters: a little boy, a loving family, the team of doctors. The diagnosis: terminal, little hope for a cure. There are two possible outcomes. Will his family be plunged into extreme sorrow or miraculous joy?

What if the answer was both?

Ellie Poole Ewoldt debuts with a memoir of desperate hope and fierce love; of a family who refused to give up even when they heard the worst possible news for their two-year-old son, Chase. Moment by moment, the Ewoldts faced brain surgery and chemo, spinal taps and transfusions. And yet, the true miracle lay not in the medicine or Chase’s prognosis—rather, Chase’s life shows us the miracle of hope, even through the darkest nights. If there is anything he and the Ewoldts have learned, it is that God is always good and will stay at your side through every moment, no matter what it holds.

You’ll fall in love with Chase through his story and be inspired to help chase away cancer—for this headstrong boy, his fighting friends, and all those in your own life who need hope for whatever tomorrow may bring.

My Thoughts:
Grab a box of tissues and be ready for one of the most powerful, intense stories of your life. I feel like I say that about a lot of books, but when I read any books about children fighting pediatric cancer, immediately my heart melts and my eyes are a puddle, yet inside of each child is a warrior. "Chase Away Cancer" shows us the warrior inside of all of us despite the needle pokes, scans, radiation or whatever junk comes our way, we all have a hope and this book reminds us of who are hope is in and where we can find it. Whether you're facing Cancer or some other storm in your life, this book is for those who need to know there is something beyond the battle and you have the courage to weather the difficult storm. Thank you to Tyndale for allowing me to review this book. I give this book 5/5 stars. I was not compensated for a positive review.
