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…
