Cancer Book - May be of help?!

Hello all,

I had cancer when I was 31, I was a wife, mother to a two-year-old and three-month-old, a writer, I had friends, family, liked to travel... so much more than just a cancer patient.

It was actually this fact exactly that inspired me to write 'The Fabulous Woman’s Guide Through Cancer' because I found all books to be either very medical or memoirs but that wasn't what I wanted (or needed). I wanted to know about the lifestyle effects of having cancer. To know how to explain cancer to a toddler, what to pack for hospital, how to stay social when I didn't feel well enough to go out, how to survive a social event, and what to do when depression takes hold.

I made sure the book gives real advice from real women who have really had cancer (not just me, other much more fabulous ladies too). It includes tips, examples, stories, information and ideas and plenty of kind words and inspirational stories. I also made sure that it is written with much needed compassion and humour.

I am now trying to really get the book 'out there' so that it can hopefully help as many women as possible.

Just search The Fabulous Woman's Guide Through Cancer on Amazon, Book Depository, etc…

Love NB

Sounds just like the book I would have needed 6yrs ago. Will pop over to Amazon to have a look. Thanks :)


Ahhh… sorry to hear that you didn't have something you needed then! I hope you still think that it is good :)



Yes I am going to pop over to Amazon and do the same thank you


I hope you find it useful. Nx


Your book may or may not be helpful and interesting, but I don't think this forum is the appropriate place to repeatedly seek to promote it.

There are other bookshops than Amazon and the Book Depository who pay their taxes in the countries in which they make their profits.

Taxes paid help public services like the NHS.

I'm sorry you feel that way. The book is available on a number of websites not just those two.
