Death is not Dying - Rachel Barkey

Rachel Barkey is a 37 year old wife (to Neil) and mother to two children who lives in Vancouver and attends Westside Church (Canadian Conference of Mennonite Brethren). Four and a half years she was diagnosed with breast cancer, which has now become terminal. On March 4, 2009, Rachel was asked to speak to 40 women from her church - and 600 women showed up to hear her speak of the power of Christ at work in her life in the face of death.

“Cancer does not define me. Neither does being a wife or a mother. All these things are part of who I am but they do not define me. What defines me is my relationship with Jesus.”
