Author and Boardman resident Mary Pappas and her book “Courage, Hope and Healing — Finding God’s Presence Through Life’s Toughest Circumstances” — will be featured on the international television station the Christian Broadcasting Network (CBN).
Pappas’ story revolves around her battle with a rare cancer of the thymus gland over the past 29 years.
She wrote her book to encourage and inspire those facing cancer or any difficult life circumstances.
The network’s producer and camera crew spent two days in the area interviewing Pappas, her family, pastor and UPMC physician.
The television program, which can be seen on the Family Channel, will be broadcast today at both 10 a.m. and 10 p.m.
Pappas’ book can be purchased at www.couragehopeandhealing.com as well as at Boardman’s Barnes & Noble and anywhere books are sold.
