No Cure For Being Human (and Other Truths I Need to Hear)
Aged just thirty-five, Kate Bowler was diagnosed with stage IV colon cancer. She was forced to ask one of the most fundamental questions of all: How do we create meaning in our lives when the life we hoped for is put on hold?
In No Cure for Being Human, Kate explores both the comically ludicrous and poignantly profound as she figures out how to navigate life with the knowledge that it could end at any moment.
With dry wit and unflinching honesty, Kate grapples with her cancer diagnosis, her ambition and her faith, as she searches for peace with her limitations in a culture that says anything is possible.
