In His Grip

400,000 women are diagnosed with breast cancer in the United States each year, and 40,000 die from it annually. One in every 8 women (and the number is growing) will develop breast cancer in their lifetime. There are currently 2.9 million women who have survived it.

In His Grip is a memoir, a confession, a journey, a narrative, a reflection and a documentary of one woman’s fight against breast cancer. It is open and honest, often raw, always revealing, deadly serious and frequently humorous. It is a delightfully open glimpse into the lives of Amy and Tom Hauser as together they journey through and overcome breast cancer.

Originally intended as strictly an online medical update for family and close friends, it became a revealing journey of faith and hope, showcasing one family’s courage, God’s grace, and the gifts of His love and community.

In His Grip is the full story, with all the elements – good, bad, and ugly. This is not just a story about Amy’s battle against cancer– it’s a book about life’s journey.

One reader wrote:

“Tom and Amy, I don’t have breast cancer or any other type of cancer, and I don’t have close family or friends that do. I read In His Grip simply because someone gave it to me. What I didn’t expect was to be drawn so deeply into your story. I felt like each struggle was my own and each victory was mine as well. I laughed out loud, cried, celebrated, and mourned, right alongside you as you lived out and beautifully shared your journey. Most unexpected was how personally encouraged I felt about my own personal life struggles.”
