If there’s one thing that Philip achieves in his book, it’s giving hope! In dealing with cancer, hope is certainly not a luxury but a necessity. He also answers some very pertinent questions. Well done!

I enjoyed reading Philip’s book – he has been my patient ever since he was diagnosed with Multiple Myeloma in 2017. I have witnessed first-hand his courageous battles against this disease which he refers to as his “Goliath.” He shares valuable insights and medically sound advice out of the wealth of his personal experience. I believe that what he writes will be a source of encouragement and hope to any cancer sufferer.

Dr Sarita Retief, Oncologist, Nelspruit Mediclinic.

Written by a three times cancer survivor, this book is a must read for anyone facing and fighting cancer as well as for their caregivers.

Called from a scientific background into Christian ministry, Philip has the ideal background to furnish valuable factual advice and spiritual counsel to his readers. He shares candidly about how God helped him overcome malignant melanoma and prostate cancer and about his present struggles against multiple myeloma.

Philip sees no conflict between receiving medical treatment and exercising faith in God for healing. His book is packed with faith building encouragement, and will empower and inspire the reader to fight cancer and win.
