On My Way Home: A Hospice Nurse's Journey with Terminal Cancer
On My Way Home: A Hospice Nurse's Journey with Terminal Cancer
Joyce Hutchison
[Paper Back] 03/03/2017
ISBN:9781594717291

When Hutchison received the diagnosis of stage-four lung cancer, she couldn’t believe it. As she shared the painful news with her children, endured the hardships of chemotherapy, and coped with weakness and exhaustion, she came to the realization that she wanted to share this journey with others.


Hutchison gives an account of the physical, emotional, and mental challenges of each step: when chemo made her dreadfully sick, when her emotions fluctuated wildly in a matter of minutes, how she felt when people told her she looked so good. She shares how her sense of humor helped her cope with the weariness of yet another procedure and the isolation that accompanies cancer.


Despite her suffering, Hutchison held fast to faith. Supported by her family and friends, she tells how she experienced God’s love in a new way. A foreword and afterword by Joyce Rupp, Hutchison’s writing partner on her two previous books, provide context for the book and relate the circumstances of Hutchison’s death on May 7, 2016, and the Mass of the Resurrection that followed.
