Deanna Favre and Shane Stanford hold book signing

By Jeff Daley – email

HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) - Deanna Favre and Shane Stanford were at Books A Million Sunday afternoon signing copies of their recently released book.

The book is called "The Cure for the Chronic Life, Overcoming the Hopelessness That Holds You Back."

Both Favre and Stanford have experienced life threatening illnesses, Fare with breast cancer and Stanford with H-I-V.

The book encourages its readers to live beyond their chronic hopelessness and experience joyful living.

"When we thought about the things that we went through it was very easy , with Deanna's illness, with my illness, it was to turn inward," said Stanford. "We talked a lot about that.  Deanna actually wrote the forward to a book that I wrote called "When God Disappears" and that was the start of the conversation and we began to think are there things that we can share with people about our respective journeys that will allow them to get out of those patterns and to live a life that is healthy, that they can experience the fullness of we believe life should be about."

Favre heads up the Deanna Favre 4 Hope Foundation providing grants to women with breast cancer in Mississippi and Wisconsin. Stanford is a teacher, speaker, and author of seven books.
