I jumped at the chance to review this book by Nicola Bourne as I’m always interested in an alternative perspective to cancer, especially those of other women who are/have been on a similar journey. Myself and Nicola have had similar experiences in having bowel cancer that has resulted in a colostomy, so I was extra interested in this read!
The book that Nicola has written is less about her personal cancer battle and more of an uplifting book full of useful tips on how to make your cancer journey a less negative experience. It’s a great little reminder that you may be ill, but it doesn’t mean that you can’t have fun and live your life whilst you’re undergoing treatment. I loved the tips on how your can (safely) pamper yourself, on how to party without the stress and the mess and most importantly of all that you don’t have to face cancer alone. Your family and friends will want to help you. Nicola reminds you of this and how to divide those tasks so that you can make the most of that help without feeling guilty.
If you’re going through cancer at the moment, I recommend this as a read. It’ll give you the lift you need and leave you feeling more positive about the road ahead.
