“It’s cancer…” Few words have as much potential to turn life upside down and change everything in an instant. But more than 1.5 million people will hear these words this year in the United States alone. That’s over 4,000 a day! There are currently more than 15 million people in the United States living with cancer. Every one of us knows someone close who is dealing with cancer… people we love and care about the most—family, friends and colleagues.
Featuring some of the world’s leading experts, many who are cancer survivors, the Challenging Cancer Series is packed full of counseling and spiritual insights.
The Challenging Cancer Series is comprised of five video-based and two audio-based individual and support group counseling programs.
My prayer is that we can impact tens of thousands of lives by offering hope, encouragement, strength and deep spiritual wisdom. If you or someone you love needs hope… or if your church would help “stand in the gap”—then click the button below and get started on the Challenging Cancer Series today.
When you successfully finish this program (more than 200,000 students have enrolled in a Light University course), you will earn a Certificate of Completion.
Continuing Education credits are also available, if needed, for mental health professionals.
