The Rev. Albert Williams stands in the pulpit at Salem Missionary Baptist Church, reading scripture from Psalm 103:1-4.
When Williams gets to the part that says, “Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits, who forgives all your iniquities, who heals all your diseases,” he pauses, perhaps temporarily lost in memories, but forever filled with thanks.

It took 11 months and 18 days.
It began in February 2010, when Williams learned that what he thought was a persistent case of acid reflux was actually laryngeal cancer.
After 35 rounds of radiation didn’t put Williams in remission, he underwent a six-hour surgery, during which doctors discovered the tumors were so invasive, the only chance for a cure was to remove his entire voice box.
“It’s really strange to wake up and find you can’t speak,” Williams said.
