From the Author

This has been an incredible experience. When I was diagnosed with Breast Cancer, I never imagined, I would be writing a book. I have tried to be absolutely honest and vulnerable with you, the reader.

Her desire is to offer a helping hand and provide comfort and hope to those struggling. Beth and her husband, David, have four adult children and make their home in Oklahoma.

I started this book last night. I read before sleeping. But, I woke up off and on throughout the night. I had to pick that book up over and over until I finished it. I couldn't let the emotion between the front and back cover leave me, because it was real and I needed to finish the journey with her.

In this book, Beth's emotions were raw, exposed, honest. She shared her thoughts, her fears, her anger, and confusion--everything. She didn't preach, although she did share God's reminders. She just offered hope and by exposing all her thoughts and feelings, she offered understanding. We all need to know someone else "gets it." Beth does.

Having had colon cancer in my own past, I cried as I read Beth's words. I was reminded of how misunderstood I had felt, how emotionally turbulent my thoughts and actions had sometimes been, and was encouraged that I really wasn't the only person who had ever felt that way.

Beth also shares her husband's thoughts in this book. That made me cry even more. (I'm such a woos!) It was good to actually "read" what I knew my husband had been through... to know that another man can love his wife the way mine loves me, regardless of the interruption of cancer.

Take heart, there are laughable moments, too. "Eunuch is snap worthy." I busted up on that one. It just struck me at the right time. After building up all the emotion, that little sentence was an emotional release to allow me to laugh. And David's words carried humor for me, too... "That is why there is duct tape."

I personally know Beth. I FINALLY finished a major project and had a moment to read her story. It only makes me love her more. She is one of the most caring, selfless people, you will ever meet.

I've never experienced breast cancer myself, but reading Take My Hand was important to me because breast cancer runs in my family. My great aunt and my Great Grandmother have gone through cancer and mastectomies. I remember seeing my Grandmothers bra post mastectomy hanging on a door handle and hearing tid- bits about her having cancer, but it was mostly a non topic in our family.

I don't think I've ever read such detailed honesty and real emotion in a book and never experienced that kind of insight as my own family went through their journey. I was very moved by not only Beth's own experience and feelings, but her husband’s experience in their journey as well. I had to ask myself who are the REAL friends and loved ones who would walk beside me if I ever have to experience this journey. I was taken aback by some of the treatment and comments made by people in Beth’s life and could easily relate those comments and behaviors to toxic people in my own life.

Take My Hand was a very insightful book that EVERY woman should read. I am scheduling an appointment for my own health check up and will be taking my breast health more seriously going forward. Thank you Beth Wilson for putting such a personal experience out there for the world to learn from!

I had the honor of meeting Beth Wilson at an event we both participated in. I purchased Take My Hand because supporting authors is something I believe in. We talked for a while, laughed a little, compared notes, and I felt as if I walked away having gained a friend. Seeing her joy and her love for the Lord, I had no idea she had been through hell. What a testimony and a gift to be able to share openly, without veils, in order for other women to know they "aren't alone" in this cancer battle. Whenever I have the opportunity I will recommend this book to help other women in the same place that Beth traveled through. Thank you, Beth for being transparent in sharing your story. I believe you will help many women.

Have you been diagnosed with cancer? Have you ever wondered how to help someone you know with cancer? This book offers intimate insight to the cancer experience and compassionate suggestions for anyone facing cancer either as a patient or a friend of a patient. It offers both help and hope. Every husband and minister should read this before his wife is diagnosed. A MUST READ for every woman!!! It really helped me!

This book is written from such a raw, honest, open and heartfelt perspective that women whether they have embarked upon this same journey or not can relate to the emotions and the feelings involved. Womanhood is a sisterhood and this author really displays that with true Christian grace, hope and love. I personally will keep a few copies on hand as gifts to my "sisters" in need.
