WHEN WAS THE LAST TIME YOU HEARD A STORY OF SOMEONE WITH CANCER THAT HAD A HAPPY ENDING?

 

We don’t often hear them, but in this new book from Health Issues there are 24 happy endings from people with a huge range of cancers who recovered and went on to say exactly how they did it.

 

Overcoming Cancer: 24 true stories of triumph and hope is a collection of first-person survivor stories. These 24 people with a cancer diagnosis who came back from the brink to run marathons, to raise kids, to start charities and to live normal, healthy lives.

 

Here are some examples: 

 

Carol – had vulval cancer and recovered to start her own charity for women with this distressing and incredibly private cancer.

 

Bernie – a welder from Newcastle, recovered from melanoma in the eye and started working in healthcare.

 

Ann – after a kidney removal due to cancer went on to run  marathons, visit Australia, walk on a glacier, saw the Northern Lights and experienced a rainforest

 

Geoff Boycott – the cricketing legend saved his voice after conquering oesophageal (throat) cancer.

 

Ginny – beat melanoma, put this book together and now coaches others on recovery.

 

Scott – only 28 when he was diagnosed with testicular cancer and now a marathon-running dad who is able to speak out about the importance of self-checking for men.
