Description

Be moved! Be inspired! Be encouraged!

Here is the true and honest story of a man who out of the blue fell victim to oesophageal cancer in mid-life and fought back. He takes the reader from his incomprehension at the moment of diagnosis, to his bewilderment, then acceptance, the battle and finally the all-clear. He does not spare us the disappointments, the pain, the loneliness, the many difficulties in coping with endless hospital appointments and a dazzling array of treatments and medicaments. But there is also humour and light-heartedness and the courage which propelled him forward in the face of dismaying odds.

He talks about coping with life afterwards with only a fraction of the stomach he had before and a new oesophagus fashioned out of the rest of it: the nausea, the fatigue, the discomfort, teething problems, new surgical interventions … a journey none of us would willingly undertake but despatched here with humour and determination.

He pays tribute to friends and members of his family who gave him support and particularly to members of the many medical teams – nurses, doctors, consultants, surgeons, counsellors – from whom he received expertise, TLC and encouragement. On the other hand, he does not disguise what he sees as failures in his treatment at the hands of the NHS.

This book will inform, stimulate, hearten and move you to action. The story is lightly told, the style easy on the eye. 

In short, it’s a great read!
