Halo Found Hope ~ Review

Machines beeping, the blur of medical staff running, a crash cart whizzing into an ICU room—was there any hope?
A young woman lay, packed in ice, as doctors attempted to somehow stop the swelling in her brain that threatened to take her life… and her family waited.
Six days turned into eight weeks. She awoke to discover that she was not the same. She saw two of everything, couldn’t feel half of her face, couldn’t hear from one ear, and could not speak. She couldn’t even tell anyone that she felt hopeless… or could she?
Halo Found Hope is the story of a beautiful, busy wife, and mother of three whose life changes instantly with the diagnosis of a rare brain tumor. An exceptional ENT, a brilliant neurosurgeon and a dedicated medical team tackle the tumor, setting off a series of unbelievable miracles. Helo’s story is not one of survival, or of salvaging a life through a broken body. It is not about endurance through pain, but victory because of it. While the family heard her silence, God heard her prayer. Helo’s story is simply this: Wherever you are and whatever you are going through, God is right there. He doesn’t need to be re cognized by you, to be there for you. He can replace fear with courage and discouragement with determination, if you let Him. Helo did, and that is how she found hope.
Inspiring. Intense. Extraordinary. Uplifting. These are just some of the words I would use when describing this amazing true story! Why you ask? Well, because Helo is a Mom of 3, happily married, and living life as many of us do, until one day she finds out she has a brain tumor - a very RARE brain tumor at that. How she and her family dealt with that diagnosis and all that lie ahead of them will explain it all! 
Halo Found Hope takes you from the diagnosis all the way through to Helo's very intense rehabilitation. Imagine going into the hospital thinking you would be there for a week or less but end up being there for 8 weeks, and then, having to go through months and months of therapy. But Helo wasn't the only one effected - Her husband and children were as well. She asked the Lord to make something beautiful out of this, and truly HE did. 
Helo shares from her heart and encourages any and all who hear her story! If you know anyone who needs to be encouraged, or lacks inspiration, and who has lost Hope.... Share this book with them!! They will thank you and my guess is that person will pass it along to someone else who needs hope or inspiration and so on it goes! I am so thankful I was able to read this amazing story! 
Thank you Litfuse for allowing me this complimentary book in exchange for my honest review!
