About the Book
Published posthumously by his wife, Thank You, God, for Cancer is a poignant and inspiring memoir of one man’s experience finding meaning, comfort, and joy with his terminal cancer diagnosis. A devoted man of the cloth, Reverend Oscar Pereda decided to go against his doctor’s wishes and face cancer in his own way: by trusting God’s plan and surrounding himself with his loving family. Over the course of his journey, Rev. Pereda goes through a radical transformation, from being desperate and fearful to having a deep gratitude for God and His Grace.
