Fighting for Our Lives

My Battle With Cancer to Save My Baby and Myself

By Heather Choate

True story of survival

Mother and unborn child beat cancer through faith and determination

One of the truly remarkable stories of faith and determination: At age 29, Heather Choate was diagnosed with breast cancer. She was ten weeks pregnant with her sixth child. Her unborn baby became victim to the fast-spreading and highly dangerous cancer in Heather’s body that already spread to her lymph nodes. Doctors told her she needed to abort her baby to save her life. Heather told them, “I’d rather die than take the life of my baby.” Heather and her husband set out to find a way to save both mother and baby. The journey pushed them to the fringes of their stamina, tested the strength of their familial relationships and found them clinging to their faith like it was the last bit of thread on a lifeline.

Reading true stories of survival may change your life: We all have unexpected adversity in life. It’s those things that we think “will never happen to us.” It could be the loss of job, the birth of a special needs child, the downturn of the economy or an unexpected health challenge. Most of us would easily crumble under such circumstances, but Heather found that its not about what happens to you, its about what you do with it. You don’t have to almost die, to learn how to live and Heather shows us how. Despite adversity, nearly impossible challenges can be met, families can be strengthened and faith can sustain even the most desperate souls on their journey. She brings her role as cancer warrior into the real lives of readers, addressing topics that affect them most: dealing with doubt and insecurity, discovering who they really are, renewing their passion, negotiating family strife, releasing relentless regrets, succeeding against temptation, weathering their worst fears, pressing on against fatigue and illness, uprooting bitterness and more. Fighting for Our Lives will take you on a journey of self-examination and appreciation of the beauties of today, and the book could actually change your life.

What you'll learn in Fighting for Our Lives:

  • Don’t just survive challenges, thrive through them
  • How to use your power of choice, because it’s not what happens to you that matters, its what you do about it
  • Practical ways that faith sustains and strengthens
  • How to deal with doubt and insecurity
  • Best ways to release negativity and find forgiveness
  • How to trust your inner voice

The Mindfulness for Warriors Handbook

Coping with the Stress of First Responder Life

“…a work of major importance that offers practical approaches to self-care and serenity for our first responders...” —Louise Harmon, author of Happiness from A to Z

#1 New Release in Military Families

The Mindfulness for Warriors Handbook is a new and expanded edition of Mindfulness for Warriors, providing an additional valuable resource for first responders.

Ensuring their heads are in a healthy place is crucial. After 30 years in law enforcement, Kim Colegrove’s husband took his own life. This agonizing experience opened her eyes to the desperate need for an effective form of stress-relief and support for first responders like cops and EMTs facing trauma.

A traumatic way of life. First responders have the incredibly difficult job of running toward danger while the rest of us run away. No training prepares them for what they see and endure. Kim understands what it’s like to watch someone go through that and is dedicated to helping first responders.

A source of hope. In 2017, Kim founded The PauseFirst Project: Mindfulness for First Responders. She offers the PauseFirst block of training to organizations across the country; teaching techniques that help reduce stress, regulate emotion, and improve overall health and well-being. Her work to bring awareness is a tribute to both her husband and the countless other first responders struggling with the realities of their jobs.

Inside find:

  • Evidence-based practices to help first responders and families deal with stress
  • Interviews with first responders who share stories of overcoming, surviving, and thriving
  • Colegrove’s own raw and intimate story of her husband’s troubles and how she continues each day fighting in his memory

If you’ve found encouragement from books like Bulletproof Spirit, Bullets in the Washing Machine, or I Love a Cop, you’ll find a further source of healing in The Mindfulness for Warriors Handbook.
