Bethany’s Calendar

Elaine Marie CooperBethanys-Calendar-Cover1

In January of 2002, Elaine Cooper’s world turned upside down. One minute her 23-year-old daughter, Bethany seemed fine — a happy, brilliant young woman on the verge of a new career. The next she was strapped to a gurney in the local emergency room diagnosed with a terminal brain tumor.

During the next few months, Elaine used her nursing skills to not only help Bethany battle an unseen enemy, she learned to recognize the hand of God on her daughter’s life. Bethany’s Calendar is a story of fear and faith, commitment and compassion, told with gut-wrenching honesty while sharing unwavering faith in God. (2015 Selah Award, memoir)
