not another book on coping with breast cancer, surely?

Well, yes and no. Yes, it’s about breast cancer, but no this isn’t a regurgitation of the same old stuff. This is new stuff, which would have been really helpful to have known about when I was first diagnosed.

Even the eyebrows? is a jargon-free, practical guide for everyone who’s been diagnosed with cancer. It takes you all the way from the first heartbeat-pumping-in-ears realisation that you might just possibly have a lump in your breast, to the first fantastic cup of tea when your taste buds finally return.

If you’re just looking for a quick update, go to 10 things you ought to know – it’s an eye opener, and essential reading.

If you have children, you should visit the how kids cope page. My two daughters and son recall how they felt at the time, and how they feel now, five years on.
