In Kickin' Cancer's Butt, Again!, Donna Douglas Walchle shares the details of her journey in a real, raw, and sometimes very humorous way! A masterful storyteller, her life is like a movie in the making! Her writing is so conversational that it makes you feel as though you're having a good cup of coffee with your best friend and catching up on a long overdue chat.
She passionately communicates the adventurous details of her successful career as a songwriter and CD/music video and television producer before having cancer the first time. While at the top of her game, she also served on the Atlanta Chapter of the Board of Governors for the National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences (the Grammy awards). Post cancer, all of that was redefined.
Round two came nine years after the first bout. After being married to her career and single for her entire adult life, she had met and been dating for only three months a man named Jim. Jim's first wife, Jan, had died of cancer. (The extraordinary details of how Jim and Donna D met and their courtship leading to marriage is nothing less than a modern day fairy tale!) Donna D likes to describe her wedding day as the day where in a one-hour ceremony, she became a wife, a mom to three adult children, and a Grammy to 11, all without labor pains!
Lessons learned, faith deepened, and with an unshakeable understanding that everything has purpose, facing cancer the third time was viewed from a very different perspective. By then, she was able to embrace the truth that all things really do work together for good, even things we may not understand. Trusting god with the outcome, staying at peace, and residing in a place called surrender made all the difference.
