Halo Found Hope  Genre – Non-Fiction

Overview

Machines beeping, the blur of medical staff running, a crash cart whizzing into an ICU room, was there any hope? A young woman lay, packed in ice, as doctors attempted to somehow stop the swelling in her brain that threatened to take her life… and her family waited. Six days turned into eight weeks. She awoke to discover that she was not the same. She saw two of everything, couldn’t feel half of her face, couldn’t hear from one ear, and could not speak. She couldn’t even tell anyone that she felt hopeless…or could she? Halo Found Hope is the story of a beautiful, busy wife, and mother of three whose life changes instantly with the diagnosis of a rare brain tumor. An exceptional ENT, a brilliant neurosurgeon and a dedicated medical team tackle the tumor, setting off a series of unbelievable miracles. Helo’s story is not one of survival, or of salvaging a life through a broken body. It is not about endurance through pain, but victory because of it. While the family heard her silence, God heard her prayer. Helo’s story is simply this: Wherever you are and whatever you are going through, God is right there. He doesn’t need to be recognized by you, to be there for you. He can replace fear with courage and discouragement with determination, if you let Him. Helo did, and that is how she found hope. http://www.HaloFoundHope.com “Christian readers will find in these pages a powerful testament to the power of faith in dark times, and even agnostics will be uplifted by the joie de vivre of this remarkable woman.” Kirkus Reviews

My Opinion

This is a remarkable story about the strength a woman and her family found during a very difficult time.  Even true believers find themselves questioning God and losing faith.  Although this was a very frightening time for Helo and her family, she continues to keep faith that the Lord would bring her through and restore her health.

The love the family shows is very heartfelt and reveals the rock of their world – God.  Helo had much to endure in order to heal and continue on with her life.  God brought her through it and no matter how frustrated she got, she remembered who was in control.

This is a definite must read!  We all need reminders about our faith and through Helo’s story, you will find it.
