This is just a quick note to recommend a book to you all. I spotted this in Waterstones a few weeks ago when I was book shopping for my nephew's birthday.
'The Emperor of all Maladies: a Biography of Cancer' by Siddartha Mukerjee won the Pullitzer Prize for Non Fiction this year, and it really is an excellent read. Mukerjee is a clinical oncologist and he explains a history of the biology and treatment of cancer. The book describes how doctors and scientists have researched and discovered how cancer works, and what can be done to treat it. It doesn't focus on ovca, but discusses a few specific cancers, and makes some general points about types of cancer.
I'm not a scientist, but this book is so well written and so clearly explained, that there were only a couple of paragraphs that I had to reread. I had already done a lot of reading online about my cancer, but this book gave me a much better understanding of the disease. And it also gave me a lot of hope. By getting my head around the microbiology, I'm very optimistic about the possibilities for future treatments.
It really is worth a read!
Best wishes to you all
