For a Christian having cancer actually has some benefits:
1. You have first hand experience and can more easily relate and minister to others with cancer.
2. You have a unique platform to talk about your assurance that you will be healed whether here on earth or in heaven.
3. You are more aware of how fragile life is and are challenged to take better care of yourself.
4. You get to see how people really care and are willing to help.
5. You have a chance to grow in Christ knowing that His plan and His timing are perfect.
6. You might have a chance to get some new hats!
