not put it down. I didn't expect a book about cancer to make me laugh out
loud, but it did. The humour lightened the mood while still telling the
story. The author has managed to find the right balance between conveying
their personal experience/opinions while remaining
non-judgemental. The author is very open and honest and takes you on his
personal journey to beat cancer. It provides an in-depth look at the good,
bad and ugly side of cancer. There are some helpful and handy tips that some
may find useful when trying to come to terms with fighting the disease. An
excellent read with a dash of humour thrown in for good measure makes this
an essential book for everyone who is either going through cancer treatment
and/or friends/family who want to provide the right support for them."
powerful account of one man's journey through the complex NHS system after
being diagnosed with cancer. Never losing his sense of humour throughout,
you will find this book both fascinating and insightful. The author is very
relatable which kept me hooked right from the start."
book is a honest account of one man's journey from diagnosis and subsequent
recovery from cancer. Don't be put off by the title, it's not all gloom and
doom. I had thought it was going to be sad and serious but this is not the
case. It's honest, funny and informative."
About this book
moved! Be inspired! Be encouraged!
Here is the true and honest story of a man who out of the blue fell victim
to oesophageal cancer in mid-life and fought back. He takes the reader from
his incomprehension at the moment of diagnosis, to his bewilderment, then
acceptance, the battle and finally the all-clear. He does not spare us the
disappointments, the pain, the loneliness, the many difficulties in coping
with endless hospital appointments and a dazzling array of treatments and
medicaments. But there is also humour and light-heartedness and the courage
which propelled him forward in the face of dismaying odds.
talks about coping with life afterwards with only a fraction of the stomach
he had before and a new oesophagus fashioned out of the rest of it: the
nausea, the fatigue, the discomfort, teething problems, new surgical
a journey none of us would willingly undertake but
despatched here with humour and determination.
pays tribute to friends and members of his family who gave him support and
particularly to members of the many medical teams nurses, doctors,
consultants, surgeons, counsellors from whom he received expertise, TLC
and encouragement. On the other hand, he does not disguise what he sees as
failures in his treatment at the hands of the NHS.
This book will inform, stimulate, hearten and move you to action. The story
is lightly told, the style easy on the eye.
short, its a great read!
