CHR Comment: A police officer’s care, willingness to listen, and to pray changed the day for this distraught driver who had just learned about his daughter’s cancer.

Carter was recently in the news having announced at this same Bible class that his cancer was in remission.
Kara Tippetts, who is battling cancer, speaks about envying the longevity of the elderly rather than pining for heaven.
