Thirty-five years old, Kate Drummer, professor at the School of Theology at Duke, finally had a baby with her childhood love when she began to feel acute pain in this area in her stomach.She lost 30 kilos, swallowed up antacid, and consulted doctors for three months before she was finally diagnosed with stage IV colon cancer.Kate sails after her diagnosis, she draws it from the reader’s life and story – affectionately filled with a colorful procession of friends, mega-church preachers, parents and doctors – and the actions of her irreverent, laser-sharp reflections on faith, friendship, love and death.She wonders why suffering makes her feel like a loser and explores the burden of positivity.Trying to enjoy the time she always has with her son and husband, she realizes that she needs to heal her habit of “jumping to the end” and planning for the next step.A historian of the American Gospel of Prosperity (the megachurch credo, which promises believers a cure for tragedy, if they just want it badly enough) Kate discovers that she loves these same “outrageous certainties”.Why is it so difficult to surrender, she knows, there are no spiritual guaranteesCurrently, the experimental treatment immunology she’s undergoing, and studies suggest Kate still has at least a year to live.
