It's Okay to Die - The Dando Family
Shirley Dando's Story - Dying Graciously
When Shirley and Graeme Dando were both diagnosed with cancer they began a journey which would test their faith and change them forever.
This book tells that story, making use of Shirley's diaries and writings, along with Graeme's recollections. To Shirley, healing was never based on an 'all or nothing' concept but viewed as a catalyst to bring her to a closer relationship with God.
Along the way, there were set-backs and difficulties as well as all kinds of victories and milestones. The road was marked with resilience, hope, the love of their family, the encouragement and doubts of those around them, questions, unexpected twists and turns, unquenchable faith in the face of disappointment and an ever-deepening relationship with God.
When one of them dies and the other is healed, it leaves forever the unanswered question 'Why was one saved and the other not?' and fuels the never-ending debate regarding healing in our time. As Shirley put it in her journal: "On the one hand was the belief that if we ask we shall receive and that God would therefore heed our prayers and heal us; and on the other hand was the conflicting perspective that this illness was God's will and we should submit: Your will Lord, not mine."
