Updated: Mar 2, 2021

The Unexpected Gift

Profiles in Courage from Cancer Survivorship

SC+W’s founder, Keesha Carter, along with twenty-one other survivors feature their first-person essays in the recently published book, The Unexpected Gift: Profiles in Courage from Cancer Survivorship.

This powerful collection of stories is introduced by the dynamic physician, community leader, and survivor Dr. Ophelia Garmon-Brown. The Unexpected Gift will inspire you as it explores themes such as the importance of sharing the cancer experience traits that can emerge or develop in times of trial, the deepening of faith, a new stewardship of one's physical wellness, and the necessity of perseverance.

Together, these voices create a complex and powerful portrait of courage, resiliency, and the meaning of survivorship. The Unexpected Gift empowers and uplifts patients, family members, and caregivers alike with a message of hope.

All proceeds from the sale of The Unexpected Gift will benefit the Novant Health Foundation.
