‘Mum Please Help Me Die’ author shares powerful testimony during church service
Thy Cameron visited St matthews in reading.
During a recent visit to St Matthew’s, Reading, author Thy Cameron shared her daughter’s powerful story of holding onto her faith when faced with cancer.
On the 19th of May, the congregation were able to hear about the many trials, and joys that Thy’s daughter Shirley, faced in that time. Thy recently published Shirley’s story as a book called Mum Please Help me to Die, which is available to buy now.
Copies of the book were made available to those attending the church service on the day.
Thank you to all involved.
About the Book
WHEN CANCER MEETS LOVE
Shirley Cameron struggles with depression, feelings of rejection and a sense of unworthiness. Living in the UK, far away from her Christian family in South Africa, she finds herself in and out of relationships and struggling with her faith. If God loves her, then why do so many things close to her heart seem to get taken away? So when she is diagnosed with osteosarcoma (bone cancer), she at first concludes it is a punishment from God, that she hasn’t performed well enough.
But then God’s love begins to invade her life, through the support of her parents and a band of faithful Christian friends at her local church. Shirley is covered in prayer both at home and at healing meetings, until friends can soon sense the tangible presence of God around her whenever they visit. As her body becomes increasingly sick and the cancer steals one thing after another that she has held dear, God gradually works an emotional healing in Shirley that leads to her finally acknowledging again and again, “I’m so happy…”
