Proud to be featured in the new Pink Ribbon website – how I won the Janey Lee Grace ‘Janey Loves’ Platinum Award for my book From Both Ends of the Stethoscope – getting through breast cancer by a doctor who knows – Dr Kathleen Thompson
I had such a lovely talk with the amazing Tracy J on Urban Jazz Radio about breast cancer and about how my book can help people with cancer. Thank you so much for the invite Tracy. Listen to the first half of the show here
I received this wonderful email from Claudia a few days ago – I am so touched she spent time to write to me
A year ago my dear friend Karin sent me your book from London all the way to Santiago in Chile. It was a wonderful gift that arrived few months before undergoing the first scans a year after the surgery. It was the perfect timing, because by then I had overcome the overdoses of info on CA that I had after the diagnosis. I read so much, that it came a moment when I could not process anything with the word CA. When Karin’s present arrived, I was ready and willing to read some more… and your book was nothing like I had read before on cancer, it was an absolute delight!
All the information was very useful, even the part that is related to NHS, as the protocols are the same. Even though I had read a lot before, the book brought to my attention important facts that I had not focused on, and most important it shifted my vision on being a breast Ca patient. it helped me face just before the exams the most feared question: what if it comes back? that was also perfect timing too.
And being all of this just outstanding, what I enjoyed more above all was your sense of humour… absolutely therapeutically! Going through the pages felt like having a conversation with a dear friend.
It has taken me a year to send this email, which shows how much resistance I still have to the topic.All the more reasons to say thank you for writing this beautiful book.
It was such a pleasure to discuss my book on the #cancerbookclub replay available here – thanks so much to hosts, Robin McGee, Pat Wetzel and Stephanie Zimmerman and all the participants in the discussion.
What an exciting day. I attended the prestigious Janey Loves Platinum Awards in London today. It was an excellent event and amazing people from many different health and well-being companies. I was stunned and thrilled when my book won the Platinum Award. So very proud. Pictured collecting my award with Radio 2’s Janey Lee Grace and Pop Idol’s Carrie Grant
