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?

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. 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. Helo's story is simply this: Wherever you are and whatever you are going through, God is right there. He doesn't need to be recognized by you, to be there for you. He can replace fear with courage and discouragement with determination, if you let Him. Helo did, and that is how she found hope.


This book was so – wow. I was so amazed at the author’s courage to tell her story like this. Helo does a fantastic job at not only telling us her story, but in giving us such an empowering message. Sometimes, you just need a book like this. I felt like Helo was right here with me, and we were talking face-to-face. Full of determination, hope, and ups and downs this book is definitely one that I would recommend to those who need some encouragement when all feels lost.
