Nancy French Had It All—Then Along Came Trump. Her New Book ‘Ghosted’ Tells All.

“Please pray for me today,” she wrote on X on Wednesday (April 17), the day after the book launched, when she was to receive a form of chemotherapy called the “red devil.” She’s also posted about looking for a wig during cancer treatment and about the toll the cancer and the treatment are taking on her.

Unlike some of her peers who grew up in Christian homes and conservative circles and felt unmoored from faith after the rise of Trump, she remains confident in God, if not in her fellow believers. That faith in her fellow Christians was tested more recently when French began reporting on abuse at Kanakuk, one of the nation’s most popular Christian camps.

“I feel like I’m holding on to Christianity by my fingernails,” said French, who wrote “Ghosted” while being treated for cancer. “But I just know that God has shown up for me over and over and over. I just feel very close to God, even if I feel distant from the church.”
