Format: Paperback
I couldn't put this book down once I had started it. Sarah describes her journey through diagnosis & treatment of breast cancer in a truly compelling way. You really want to know what happens next & to find out if Sarah will succeed in her fight to find the right treatment choices. You really feel that you are travelling alongside Sarah, experiencing the frustration & the fatigue; the depression & the isolation; the lows & the highs that come from the small successes hard won & hard fought for. Directly written in a 'no frills' manner, Sarah shares with us some inside information on the world of cancer diagnosis & treatment as viewed from her very personal experience. We meet the 'good' guys & some of the 'guys' who seem oblivious to the fact that there is a real person, with real needs & views, behind the label 'cancer patient'. After her harrowing journey, Sarah turns to the question of cancer prevention...or lack of it & asks why so much effort & money is ploughed into diagnosis & treatment & why so little is done to prevent cancer occurring in the first place. A great read. A good story. I can't wait for the next instalment.

Sarah writes in a very easy to read and understand style. Her inital reaction at being diagnosed with breast cancer was very similar to my experience. Her journey is described in a very honest and frank style that will make you laugh, and sometimes make you want to shed a tear.

Natural treatments for cancer are available, it you know where to look, and Sarah has worked hard on her research, hopefully this will help many more people.

Her views on the politics of breast cancer are not widely publicised, but I belive they should be, it is shameful that pharma companies are making so much money from cancer treatments, but are loathe to support research into prevention, surely cancer is more important than the share price????
