Take My Hair (but not my humour): One mum's journey seeing off Breast Cancer by Emma Davies
Happily ticking off her ‘forty things at forty’ bucket list in 2019 Emma, wife and mother to two young children, hadn’t included a breast cancer diagnosis. Rather inconveniently a summer of fun was replaced with hospital appointments, scans and the commencement of ‘The Poisoning’ (chemotherapy).
Using her slightly sweary and dark humour Emma takes you on a ‘Bridget Jones diary’ style chronological journey in her quest to kill ‘Lumpy’. From sensible practical tips and advice to her weekly mini blogs to manage her ‘Cancer comms’, ‘chemo sitter’ rotas for friends to entertain her on treatment days and Uncle Fester at Halloween she shows you the highs, the lows and everything in-between.
She also shares the real time conversations and words of loved ones. One thing’s for sure - Cancer could take her hair but she was damned if it was taking her humour. £2 from every paperback sold will be donated to FORCE cancer charity.
