PEARL, Miss.(WJTV) – Many gathered at the Outlets of Mississippi to check out one cancer survivor’s story. 

Vanessa Cousins, author of “I’ve Been Through the Valley, But God…,” signed copies to her book at the outlet mall. 

Cousins is a breast cancer survivor and she wanted to share her story and let people know what’s helped her through her battle. 

“The book’s concept is about life, and no matter where you are in your battle, that God is with you.” She added, “And no matter what type of battle and no matter where you are in that journey, God is a healer, and he’s able to bring you out of it.”

In addition to signing copies of her book, Cousins raised money for the Hope House.
