We must embrace pain and burn it as fuel for our journey
Not all roads in life are ones we want to take, but Esther’s bout with, and subsequent recovery from cancer has served as one of THE defining events that has made Esther what she is today. Her road to recovery has been undeniably strengthened, and indeed has been possible, by her belief in God and her faith as a Christian. This epic, if unforgiving event has sharpened her belief and shaped her outlook on life. She shares this outlook in many ways and attributes her battle with cancer as a driving force.
