    Traveling the Rocky Road of Cancer with Venita McCart on CD Speak UP!

    in Christianity

    Join us this week on Christian Devotions SPEAK UP! when Scott shares the road of cancer survival with author and Boot Camp graduate Venita McCart.

    Venita McCart began her ministry of encouraging cancer patients in 2004 and founded Faith Force Cancer Support Group Ministry in 2005. According to statistics at the time of her cancer diagnosis in 2000, her prognosis for survival was grim.

    Because of her passion for Christ and a call to serve those dealing with cancer, she has been in contact with countless cancer patients and loved ones through her care group, personal contacts, writing, and speaking. Her goal is to encourage cancer patients and their loved ones from the perspective of faith. 

    Venita serves as the Support Group Ministry Director in her church. She is an award-winning volunteer with the American Cancer Society and a member of the American Brain Tumor Association. Venita is a member of Word Weavers, has been published with Christian Devotions.us, and writes the material for her Faith Force Support Group Ministry meetings. Her favorite earthly joy is to spend time with her husband Gary, their two adult children (and spouses), and her six grandchildren.

    Her first book, “It’s Cancer” – Finding Help and Hope on the Road to Recovery, was
    written to encourage cancer patients, survivors, and loved ones. It was released by Lighthouse Publishing of the Carolinas and is available on Amazon. Venita and Gary live in central Illinois. She can be reached at venitamccart@gmail.com.
