"It feels like a mint," Lois commented as the doctor directed her hand over the lump. She glanced at her husband. He looked pale green.
"Are you okay?" she asked.
"Are you okay?" he asked back.
The "okay question" would resurface frequently over the coming months as Lois faced her personal battle with cancer. Then she met Jehoshaphat, an Old Testament character famous for sending a choir out to battle in front of his army. Jehoshaphat had faced a great multitude and won. Lois, too, was facing a "great multitude"—of cancer cells. The battle was on: God, Jehoshaphat and Lois against the enemy—breast cancer.
This is the story of how they won!
