About 1 out of 8 women in the United States will develop invasive breast cancer. The disease claims thhe lives of nearly 40,000 women every year.(1) Many people know someone who has battled breast cancer but few of us know how to respond. When young mother Vivian Mabuni was diagnosed with breast cancer three days before Christmas, she struggled to know how to respond. With her new book, Warrior in Pink: A Story of Cancer, Community, and a God Who Comforts, she provides an honest look at what it tis like to be diagnosed with and treated for cancer.
Vivian Mabuni is a mother, speaker, and cancer survivor who writes about life, love and God. She and her husband, Darrin, have been on staff with Cru (formerly Campus Crusade for Christ) for twenty-five years. They serve in Epic Movement, the Asian-American ministry of Cru, and live in California with their three children.
