Book Description

Chris Geiger is the author of the top selling book 'The Cancer Survivors Club' published by OneWorld Publications.

Bad Cells is a collection of Chris Geiger’s thought-provoking and witty newspaper columns. His weekly column rapidly grew in popularity, eventually earning him the prestigious Columnist of the Year award.

He writes about such random subjects as our attitude towards breasts, dog walkers, death, high fibre diets, cosmetic surgery, car alarms, prostate examinations, the Queen’s speech, celebrities, and assisted suicide. Other observations include Wimbledon, doctor’s waiting rooms and suggestions that smokers are “dumb or dyslexic” for ignoring the health warnings on packets.

With an introduction and extra column written exclusively for this collection, Bad Cells is titled after a movingly reflective piece, describing his thoughts when first diagnosed and receiving treatment for cancer.

Bad Cells includes Chris Geiger’s wide-reaching Guinness World Record column, published on World Cancer Day and an excerpt of his top selling book ‘The Cancer Survivors Club’.

Users who join the social network ‘’ can download a free copy of this book. The Cancer In Common community enables cancer survivors, patients and their friends to connect, search and then communicate privately with other members; based on their cancer type, age and location.

More About the Author

Chris Geiger won the 'Columnist of the Year' award, for his thought-provoking and light-hearted newspaper columns, publicising the disease and cancer issues.

Chris had to endure almost two years of cancer treatment, which included a number of operations, radiotherapy, chemotherapy and a bone marrow transplant before he was finally in remission.

He is the author of the top selling book, The Cancer Survivors Club, published by OneWorld Publications, which he wrote to inspire and encourage everyone touched by cancer.

Other projects to raise awareness include writing a newspaper feature on World Cancer Day, in which he received a Guinness World Record for 'Most Published Newspaper Article'.

Chris is continuing his research into the myths and merits of complementary and alternative cancer treatments. Having located almost 2,000 alleged 'cancer cures', Chris is exploring if so-called 'Miracle Cures' really work? Are desperate, vulnerable cancer patients simply being taken advantage of by those who want to make a quick financial gain? Should you have experience, good or bad, please contact Chris via his website.

On a more relaxing and fun note, Chris is working on his first fictional novel, inspired by his time spent in hospital receiving cancer treatment for non-Hodgkin's lymphoma. Its a hilarious but heart-wrenching love story narrated by a hospital worker, whose driving ambition from a young age was to become a doctor.

4.0 out of 5 stars Encouraging book 10 Feb. 2014
By Ana Voges - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I was encouraged by this book. As a cancer survivor. the author's own long survival was like a breath of fresh air. So many people I know have developed cancer within a few years of the original cancer and have in many instances fought the second battle bravely but not successfully. Chris Geiger shows that a long survival is possible and for that I thank hime.

I wish had read the book while undergoing the dark hours of treatment. The author's positive thinking is inspiring.

The book was easy to read and no nonsense kind of book. The humour was great. My only criticism is that very little mention is made of colon cancer and how difficult it is to cope with the bag, reversal surgery and its aftemath. I have yet to find a book that tackles any of these problems.

The four star rating is an honest rating as I hope to read the book over and over again.

I really liked the glimpse into another cancer patient's daily life. Easy to read to pick uo, read a little and put down for next time. Very good if you, too, are going through chemo.
