B is for Breast Cancer : From anxiety to recovery and everything in between - a beginner's guide Paperback
'The day after I was diagnosed with breast cancer, I was standing in the chemist with a basket in my hand, blinking back tears and thinking, "Now what does a breast cancer patient need?" All I could come up with was waterproof mascara.
I put some in my basket and thought someone should write an alternative guide to breast cancer.
Step one - buy waterproof mascara. You're going to need it. A few short months later, I found I was writing the guide myself.
I sat in bed in between hospital appointments with my laptop, furiously, desperately trying to make sense of this alien world I had entered.'Written entirely while Christine Hamill was undergoing cancer treatment, this book is an honest and frank account of the emotional and physical impact of a cancer diagnosis.
It is at turns funny, sad, angry and ultimately optimistic.
Written without sentimentality, B is for Breast Cancer offers bite-size chunks of help and hope - a daily pep talk to anyone affected by the disease.
It's packed full of the practical information that you really need.Read this book.
It helps to know you are not alone.
