Description

A happy heart is good medicine. On October 8, 2015, Victoria Jackson was getting ready for her 45-minute stand up routine at Zanie's Comedy Club in Nashville. But instead of enjoying the pre-show excitement, she was laying on the couch in the green room coughing nonstop, drinking tea with lemon and honey, and sucking on cough drops. Vicki had many scary moments growing up: doing a back handspring on the four-inch balance beam; performing stand up comedy; auditioning for Saturday Night Live; and getting held up by a robber with a gun in a parking lot in downtown Los Angeles. But being told she had cancer was her scariest moment. Join Vicki as she wonders "why me?" and if her lollipop addiction caused the cancer, writes a ukulele song in the MRI waiting room, undergoes a double mastectomy with secret messages written in permanent marker to her doctor on her chest and stomach, goes through chemotherapy, radiation, baldness, and lavender hair,discovers that Jesus is enough and performs at Zanie's to a standing ovation nearly one year after her diagnosis. If you're one of the one-in-eight women who've been diagnosed with breast cancer, or if you know someone who has, this 21-day devotional is full of humour, insight, and comfort as you walk with God through this dark valley.

Author Biography

Victoria Jackson is best known for her six seasons on Saturday Night Live, 1986-1992, and has also appeared in many films. Vicki was raised in a Bible-believing, piano-playing home with no TV. Her father was a Baptist deacon, ex-vaudevillian, and gymnastic coach, so she competed in gymnastics from age 5 to 18. While at college on a gymnastics scholarship, Vicki discovered drama. An audition put her in contact with Johnny Crawford (The Rifleman) who promptly put her in his nightclub act and gave her a one-way ticket to Hollywood. Vicki supported herself by typing at the American Cancer Society, waitressing at The Kipling Retirement Home, and being a cigarette girl at the Variety Arts Center where Johnny Carson's talent scout saw her six minute stand-up comedy act and put her on The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson where she appeared over twenty times. In 1992 Vicki was reunited with her high school sweetheart, Paul Wessel, and left show business to raise a family in the suburbs of Miami. In 2007 she finished her B.A. in Film at Palm Beach Atlantic University. Vicki still performs stand-up comedy and appears in an occasional film. She and her husband now reside in Nashville, Tennessee, to be near their daughters and grandchildren.
