What A Ride! A Journey With Cancer

Cella Bosma loved life. She lived it full and fast, from her teaching at Dordt College to the very way she walked and talked. Her enthusiasm spilled into the lives of her family, friends, peers, colleagues, and students.

When she was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2007, Cella used a CaringBridge site to record her thoughts, fears, and confidence in a God who was walking step-by-step alongside her through the challenges of cancer treatment.

Cella’s two year battle with cancer ended on March 29, 2009. But her CaringBridge journal has now been edited into book form, allowing anyone dealing with cancer to continue drawing faith and insight from her experience.

Wow! What a Ride! A Journey With Cancer is a publication of Dordt College Press, where Bosma was a professor of education from 2000 until the time of her death. Marcella (Cleveringa) Bosma was a resident of Sanborn, Iowa, and died at the age of 55. Her family notes on the cover, “It is our hope, as her family, that this book will encourage and help those who struggle with and are affected by cancer.”

The book sells for $18 and is available at area Christian bookstores, major online booksellers, and the Dordt College Bookstore, where a 25 percent introductory discount is being offered through March 10.
