Halo Found Hope By Helo Matzelle

Machines beeping, the blur of medical staff running, a crash cart whizzing into an ICU room, was there any hope? A young woman lay, packed in ice, as doctors attempted to somehow stop the swelling in her brain that threatened to take her life... and her family waited. Six days turned into eight weeks. She awoke to discover that she was not the same. She saw two of everything, couldn't feel half of her face, couldn't hear from one ear, and could not speak. She couldn't even tell anyone that she felt hopeless...or could she? Halo Found Hope is the story of a beautiful, busy wife, and mother of three whose life changes instantly with the diagnosis of a rare brain tumor. An exceptional ENT, a brilliant neurosurgeon and a dedicated medical team tackle the tumor, setting off a series of unbelievable miracles. Helo's story is not one of survival, or of salvaging a life through a broken body. It is not about endurance through pain, but victory because of it. While the family heard her silence, God heard her prayer. Helo's story is simply this: Wherever you are and whatever you are going through, God is right there. He doesn't need to be recognized by you, to be there for you. He can replace fear with courage and discouragement with determination, if you let Him. Helo did, and that is how she found hope. www.HaloFoundHope.com

After losing my mother at a very young age to a brain tumor, I just had to read this book.
I cried though most of the book and I cherished every page. Halo gives a super account of everything she went though and how she felt about it all. Halo never gave up and she stayed close to Jesus though it all.
This is a very encouraging book. I really like that Halo is giving a portion of her proceeds from her book sales to the National Brain Tumor Society. I hope that everyone buys a copy and enjoys this very riveting and encouraging book.
Warning: You will NOT be able to put this book down.
I gave this book 4 stars and I highly recommend it.
I was given a copy of this book by the publisher for my honest review.
