Having written a book myself to help people navigate thier breast cancer treatment, and which also addresses the emotional effects of the illness, I was delighted to review this new book: Love and Remission – My Life, My Man, My Cancer by Annie Belasco
It is well worth a read – see my review in Frost Magazine for more details.
Cancer Care Parcel is a fabulous web resource for people with cancer, founded by Shara, an amazing lady who has had breast cancer. They also sell parcels suitable as gifts for people newly diagnosed with cancer. I was honoured when she asked me to contribute a blog to her website.

A fabulous opportunity to win the Georgina Hawtrey-Woore Award for Independent Authors. Judged by published authors/literary agents/editors.
I was lucky enough to win this award 2 years ago for my book ‘From Both Ends of the Stethoscope – Getting Through Breast Cancer By A Doctor Who Knows’
It really helped let people know about my book.
