When young mother Vivian Mabuni was diagnosed with breast cancer three days before Christmas, she struggled to know how to respond. How do you tell your children you have cancer? How do you allow yourself to be vulnerable and ask for your family’s support? And how do you continue to trust the God who is powerful enough to prevent cancer but didn’t? Through her battle, cancer patients, family, and friends will find perspective, hope, and an honest look at what it is like to be diagnosed with and treated for cancer—as well as encouragement to know that God is present in our pain. You will also discover ways to emotionally and practically support a friend or family member who is battling cancer.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR
My husband and I have been on staff with Cru (formerly Campus Crusade for Christ) for 25 years. We have ministered on the campuses of Berkeley and UCLA, led mission teams in the Philippines, East Asia and Japan, trained staff and students in evangelism, discipleship, ministry philosophy and cross-cultural ministry. We currently work with Epic Movement, the Asian American ministry of Cru. Darrin serves as the National Director of Field Ministry on the Epic National Executive team. Epic exists to reach the students and faculty on college campuses in the U.S. with the Gospel through Asian Americans. Currently we have 41 Epic movements on campuses across the country.
Our vision has always been to raise up the next generation of leaders to influence the world. Now, with Epic, our focus is to help raise up the next generation of Asian-American leaders, who will be equipped to impact their family, community, church, and the world with the message of God’s love and forgiveness. Darrin and I dream of the day when the voice and leadership of godly Asian Americans infiltrates every facet of society. We dream of our kids and their kids finding a wide array of godly Asian-American leaders and role models. We also see incredible potential for sending Asian Americans into the mission field all around the world. Most Asian-Americans, like me, are bicultural, so they have grown up learning to contextualize and operate in two different worlds. Asian-American believers often fare better as missionaries in international, cross-cultural settings.
Our ministry is funded by churches, individuals and families who partner with us in helping bring the message of hope and healing to a hurting world.
Warrior in Pink by Vivian Mabuni is a true story of Vivian’s fight against breast cancer. It is very inspiring and uplifting. She tells how she got through it with having a wonderful supporting family and many, many friends. She didn’t stay away and by herself with the cancer. She let people help her and get her through all of the pain and heartache.
Through all of this Vivian keeps her trust and faith in God. She fights and lets God and others help her. This dear lady has such strength and courage and never gives up. If you or someone you know has cancer this book is one they should read. I highly recommend it.
