I’m a Christian with stage 4 cancer.
I was diagnosed with stage-three lung cancer in 2012. I was 58. I’ve always been a devout Christian, starting with my early family life. Right now, my faith is probably stronger than it’s ever been, because I’ve felt God’s presence through this experience. Like many, I have the strong will to live. If God grants us the intelligence to enable doctors to offer treatments that prolong life—that have prolonged my life—wouldn’t that same logic apply to those of us nearing the end of our life? Will taking this drug affect my entry into Heaven? No.
