Halo Found Hope

Halo Found Hope by Helo Matzell

Purchase a copy:

Machines beeping, the blur of medical staff running, a crash cart whizzing into an ICU room—was there any hope?

A young woman lay, packed in ice, as doctors attempted to somehow stop the swelling in her brain that threatened to take her life… and her family waited.

Six days turned into eight weeks. She awoke to discover that she was not the same. She saw two of everything, couldn’t feel half of her face, couldn’t hear from one ear, and could not speak. She couldn’t even tell anyone that she felt hopeless… or could she?

An exceptional ENT, a brilliant neurosurgeon and a dedicated medical team tackle the tumor, setting off a series of unbelievable miracles. Helo’s story is not one of survival, or of salvaging a life through a broken body. It is not about endurance through pain, but victory because of it. While the family heard her silence, God heard her prayer.


My thoughts:

“Halo Found Hope is the story of a beautiful, busy wife and mother of three whose life changes instantly with the diagnosis of a rare brain tumor.”

In this inspiring book, Heloise Matzelle shares her journey, from her brain tumor diagnosis to her recovery.  What an amazing story of hope and faith!

I found myself captivated by Helo’s life and her story.  From the first mention of brain tumor, through the myriad of complications, and through her arduous recovery, Helo’s faith remained strong and unwavering.  Yes, she was filled with questions, fear, and uncertainty, but through it all she relied on her faith in God to give her strength.  Knowing that no matter the outcome, He would carry her and her family through this life-threatening situation.   I was touched by Helo’s candidness and moved by her emotional story!

I appreciate the opportunity to read Halo Found Hope and share my honest opinion.  I received a complimentary copy of this book through Litfuse Publicity.
