Oh!, 30 Mar 2005
Diagnosed myself with Cervical Cancer nearly two years ago I have struggled to come to terms with my vacillating feelings and emotions and the reality of waiting for the final axe to fall..... picking up this book was like coming home! Despite the differences in types of both cancer and treatments I found myself identifying with Kate Carr from the very first page... uttering little 'Oh's' of recognition, tears pouring down my face as she so aptly describes the numb and terrifying rollercoaster that never ends - For the first time I found honesty and understanding - no marathons or Pollyanna'ish 'brave suffering' in sight. I only wish with all my heart that Kate Carr was still alive so that I could thank her for this wonderful book, now being ordered for my loved ones so that they can perhaps understand the person that I am now. Whatever type of cancer you or anyone you know has been diagnosed with you simply MUST read this book!
