I picked up this book, as my father has been diagnosed with stage four cancer. I wanted to read this from the perspective of someone who has been there, so that I could better support him.
What I will say is that everyone should read this book. We are all touched by this horrible and untimely disease, and reading the author's story helped me understand a little more how my father might be feeling. Whilst I know he will never be cancer free - I wanted to understand more.
It is emotional, heartfelt, honest and transparent. The author has told the story with true authenticity.
Highly highly recommended!

I am Cancer Free is an extremely positive title for something that is so terrifying to pretty much all of us, were we to be diagnosed with it.
No illness is pleasant, but surely cancer is one of the very worst, and although survival rates are increasing all the time depending on the type of cancer concerned, it is good to know that the author, who thankfully defeated this terrible disease, overcome it in order to pen this extremely good read.
From a carefree life, visiting friends and relatives, through to the initial concerns and then onto the diagnosis, the author takes us on a journey in this book. But potential readers shouldn't be put off by the subject matter. The author has bravely chose to share her experience with the reader. It is never negative, although some of it is very harrowing to read.
The description of the subsequent and very necessary operation which resulted in the author regaining her full health is a case of just enough information. There's no need for gory details and we don't get them. In essence, the author has the balance right between info-dumping and info-giving.
Again, it's a book that educates and informs.
Thank goodness for medical insurance. In the UK, we are fortunate that the NHS provides many life-saving treatments. I do hope the government (s) wake up and spend money on research to defeat this terrible disease in all its forms.
Well done to the author on the beating of this disease and in the creation of this book.
