We all know how hearing the words, you've got breast cancer can be extremely scary and life-altering. No one wants to hear that! However, if you or someone else that you love has been diagnosed with cancer, this book about cancer written by Heather Magee can help you with navigating through the stages of breast cancer. Heather knows that cancer can be difficult to beat, especially when your spirits are low. That is why she has included bible verses about healing and cancer quotes woven within the pages of her book.
Heather is the author of Diamonds in the Dark a book written to encourage and inspire those who are facing cancer or have already won their fight. Heather was born on September 14, 1956. She is the eldest of three sisters and grew up in a loving Christian family in England. She studied at Gypsy Hill Teachers Training College in Kingston, (not far from Wimbledon, where the English tennis finals are held each year). It was during her final year at college that she met Len Magee, who was one of Britain's most loved gospel singers at that time. As the prayer secretary in the Christian Union, she booked Len to sing at one of their college outreaches. He was also Pastor of a large church in the South of England. Well! It was love at first sight. From selling Len's gospel albums in the local Christian bookshop, she became his wife! They married in July 1977 at Heather's home church, Halford House, in Richmond (just outside of London).
Len and Heather have now been in ministry together for almost 40 years. Len preaches and teaches. Heather leads the worship team, writes many of the worship songs they sing, and plays keyboard in the band. Sometimes she also preaches. They are currently living on the Gold Coast in Queensland, Australia, in one of the most beautiful parts of the most spectacular countries in the world. (Well, someone has to)!
