On October 8, 2015, Victoria Jackson was getting ready for her 45-minute stand-up routine at Zanie’s Comedy Club in Nashville. But instead of enjoying the pre-show excitement, she was laying on the couch in the green room coughing nonstop, drinking tea with lemon and honey, and sucking on cough drops.
Vicki had many scary moments growing up: doing a back handspring on the four-inch balance beam; performing stand-up comedy; auditioning for Saturday Night Live, and getting held up by a robber with a gun in a parking lot in downtown Los Angeles.
But being told she had cancer was her scariest moment. She shares her story in her newest book Lavender Hair: 21 Devotions for Women with Breast Cancer (Broadstreet Publishing, October 2017). Join Vicki as she:
Wonders why me? and if her lollipop addiction caused the cancer
Writes a ukulele song in the MRI waiting room
Undergoes a double mastectomy with secret messages written in permanent marker to her doctor on her chest and stomach
Goes through chemotherapy, radiation, baldness, and lavender hair
Discovers that Jesus is enough
Performs at Zanie’s to a standing ovation nearly one year after her diagnosis
If you are one of the one-in-eight women who has been diagnosed with breast cancer, or if you know someone who has, this 21-day devotional is full of humor, insight, and comfort as you walk with God through this dark valley.
