NEW YORK—February 4, 2020—Morgan James’ new release, I Quit: Facing Cancer with Faith, Family and Friends by Kristina Schnack Kotlus, helps cancer patients deal with their difficult diagnosis. Written by a brain cancer survivor, I Quit provides strength and encouragement to individuals struggling with cancer from the perspective of someone who has experienced it firsthand.

According to the National Cancer Institute, nearly 1.8 million people are diagnosed with cancer every year in the United States. Those 1.8 million people will face a whirlwind of emotions like fear and anger on top of the obvious physical suffering cancer brings. Having dealt with this experience twice herself, Kristina Schnack Kotlus knows how a cancer diagnosis leaves one depressed and searching for answers. Offering a lighthearted, sarcastic, and even humorous outlook, Kotlus leads cancer patients to discover a new outlook on life in I Quit: Facing Cancer with Faith, Family and Friends.

Candidly sharing her experiences with chemo, radiation, and doctors, Kotlus outlines how her faith and family directed her cancer journey, and how she maintained a positive attitude in the midst unfortunate circumstances. I Quit: Facing Cancer with Faith, Family and Friends encourages patients with a positive Christian message to choose joy and choose peace in the midst of cancer’s turmoil. Filled with raw, honest emotion balanced with humorous anecdotes and encouraging words of wisdom, I Quit features themes of determination and resilience that will inspire those diagnosed with cancer to keep fighting and push through their diagnosis.
