Her most recent book, “Unleash Your God-given Healing: Eight Steps to Prevent and Survive Cancer” recently won the First Place Memoir Golden Scrolls Award from the Christian book sellers and Speakers and Writers Association.

Four months after her mother died of cancer, author and speaker Ginny Dent Brant was told by doctors she also had breast cancer, and an aggressive form of it. Having just watched her mother’s plight, Brant decided to take a different approach and immersed herself in research to find out what she could do in addition to traditional treatments to help her doctors beat her cancer.

The steps she took to change her lifestyle during her six-year battle with cancer are now chronicled in her new book “Unleash Your God-given Healing: Eight Steps to Prevent and Survive Cancer.” “My diagnosis sent me on a quest to discover why I got an aggressive and deadly cancer for which I had no risk factors or genetic indicators,” says Brant. “I read over 50 books on cancer written by doctors, scientists, nutritionists, etc. I attended medical and cancer summits online and in-person conferences where cancer experts lecture. I searched the medical and science journals tirelessly to connect the dots between the Bible, nutrition, the science of how the immune system works, and conventional and integrative medicine. My doctors were amazed when my blood work six weeks after chemotherapy showed that my red and white blood cells and platelets were all within normal ranges. They called me their ‘Rock Star’ Cancer Patient because this usually takes two to five years.”


In “Unleash Your God-given Healing,” Brant discusses in-depth how nutrition, lifestyle, integrative and conventional medicine, as well as biblical wisdom work together to boost the human body’s immune system. Additionally, Brant’s book features commentary from practicing oncologist and medical researcher, Dr. Robert Elliott, Director of the Elliott-Elliott-Head Breast Cancer Research and Treatment Center in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. Brant says the steps she took to improve her prognosis and rebuild her immune system and overall health can also be used to combat viruses such as COVID-19 as well as many other chronic diseases.


“I believe this COVID-19 is a wakeup call for us to realize we need to take better care of our bodies,” says Brant. “This disease is clearly worse in those who have underlying conditions such as diabetes, heart disease, lung issues, and poorly functioning immune systems. Doctors agree that some of the ailments we struggle with are either caused or made worse by our own lifestyle choices and lack of common sense. Since rebuilding my immune system during and after my cancer journey, I have avoided the usual yearly colds, flu or viruses. Although I’m limiting going out in public and I’m practicing the CDC guidelines, I know that if I do get exposed to COVID-19, my immune function is strong and my own body will take care of it in general.”


Brant says her battle with cancer has strengthened another necessary element of healing—her faith.


“I thank God for each day. I’m grateful for how He has created the body to heal and repair itself. It’s all a part of his miraculous design, but we must do our part. We must care for our body as the Bible instructs us. We can either enhance the wonderful immune system God has blessed us with by our lifestyle or we can suppress it. My journey has given me a new purpose in life—to educate and inform other people, help others to prevent cancer, and help those who are currently battling cancer.   It is not something I would have chosen, but God is opening the doors and I’m excited about this new direction.  Although those with my diagnosis and who go through the treatments as I did are not promised tomorrow, my new philosophy is ‘Everyday is a gift.’ I plan to serve Him faithfully until He takes me home.”
