"I am privileged to recommend the book Healed through Cancer. The path that the author James Littleton has walked is very inspirational. The fact that he invited God to join him on each step of the journey is a great act of faith. The hand that James was dealt was one that all of us fear. James did not shirk from this hand and instead embraced it through God and scripture. A marvelous journey of success through hope, humor, prayer, family, and faith. A great read for all."-Audrey Zavodsky, PhD, Sports Faith International Hall of Fame Race Driver
"Jesus said, “Ask, and you shall receive,” but he didn't say what we'd receive. So many people assume that we receive what we ask for. But our Father knows our needs better than we do, and often He gives us the healing we need rather than the one we want. We're healed through poverty, illness, adversity—even cancer. James Littleton has known such healing and wants us to know it, too. This book will surely arrive as an answer to many people's prayers."-Mike Aquilina, author and EWTN host
