Perhaps the most compelling attribute of Cancer on Two Wheels is that the author allows us into some of his most personal thoughts and feelings—something very difficult for most to share. Although we will never be able to understand the depth of his experience, he nonetheless weaves his thoughts into analogies of God’s love and grace like a pastor from the pulpit. Chris Haga reminds us of the promise that God continues to walk hand in hand with us and is already preparing the path for each of us long before we take those steps.

I have gained a new and fresh perspective of the Lord and how He works in our lives. I have been encouraged and reminded of God’s love through Cancer on Two Wheels. The author has a way of putting his feelings and spiritual battles into written words that transcend time and cancer. Through his encouraging writings, God speaks to me. I don’t have cancer, but I have other trials, and I know that God is with me through all of them. I know that He cares. Thank you for reminding me of that.

This intimate story tells of the Hagas’ love of God as well as their devotion to each other, depicts the bravery of the cancer journey, the hope for a cure, and demonstrates what faith really is. Words can’t express how deeply affected I was by reading His Love Carries Me. Following along on this remarkable quest, I could feel the moments with them, and I witnessed their love of God in every account. The author shares heartfelt, raw emotions that are known only to people experiencing a health crisis such as cancer. This should be a required read for all healthcare providers.

His Love Carries Me is a unique perspective on health, sickness, love, and God through the eyes of a loving caregiver. The Hagas' journey with God captures the limitations of modern medicine, describes the day-to-day fight for healing, and provides a powerful example of one family’s struggle to fight a menacing disease. After more than a decade in oncology, I learned a new aspect to my work with each chapter. Reading this captivating book helped me understand unwavering faith and will give encouragement to patients, caregivers, and healthcare providers alike. A must-read for everyone.

His Love Carries Me is an exceptional testimony of not only one family’s faith, but of God’s unwavering, steadfast faithfulness and grace. DeLayne Haga nails what it feels like to struggle through every step of a devastating diagnosis and bares her heart in this very personal and detailed account. This book will prove to be an invaluable resource for caregivers of persons with any illness. I highly recommend this boldly honest read along with its companion book of her late husband’s spiritual journey, Cancer on Two Wheels. You won’t be disappointed.

Written for caregivers of terminally ill patients, His Love Carries Me  has a broader appeal as a gripping love story between a man, a woman, and God. DeLayne Haga takes readers on a roller coaster ride of emotions through sickness and health that will inspire readers to hang tightly to their faith. If anyone ever needed a good reason to hug her husband—and God—this book has that, and more.

DeLayne Haga’s His Love Carries Me  is a powerful story of her family’s journey through lung cancer. God used her husband’s diagnosis and treatment path, as well as DeLayne’s caregiving experiences, to reach people and shape lives in sometimes surprising ways. I was encouraged to see how God provided and carried them through, shining His love in darkness and in light. I’d recommend this book not only to those who face a similar path, but also to anyone who hungers to see the ways God works in the lives of His people.

I was captivated from start to finish by DeLayne Haga’s tender, loving depiction of the journey of faith, hope & love that she and her husband Chris walked as they valiantly battled his lung cancer.  The author was candid and vulnerable, honest and authentic, even witty and humorous! And so 'human' & humble too--by including those 'wifey' things that we all do and complain about in our minds about our husbands that are really 'majoring on the minors'--like Chris leaving his Bible on the kitchen table. I was inspired to read of their loving relationship, their close-knit family, their strong faith, and the courage they displayed as they faced each new ‘giant’ in their battle against cancer.  Her rich portrayal of the whole journey, beautifully weaving it together in testimony to God's grace and love carrying them through it, was touching and encouraging and also enriching to/for my relationship with Jesus. Oh! And I LOVED how she closed each chapter with a scripture. All in all this book was a true blessing!

– Patty Carroll

 

I would highly recommend this book to all types of caregivers. DeLayne has written a beautiful and inspiring story about caring for her husband through his journey with cancer. It is such a tribute to their strong faith and a beautiful marriage. It is a must read for caregivers.

This is an amazing story of true love that endures throughout a roller-coaster journey – a six-year battle with cancer, and beyond. "His Love Carries Me" draws you in and allows you to be a part of this great test of faith. I greatly admire the author for honoring her husband by publishing not only this book, but a compilation of her husband's blogs – "Cancer on Two Wheels," written during these difficult times. The most memorable blog was written to be published upon Chris' death. You'll need a box of tissues. Both books are honest insights into the lives of these two soulmates. I hope you find them as inspiring as I have.
