Description

'THIS BOOK COULD SAVE YOUR LIFE' Lorraine Kelly

1 in 15 men.
1 in 18 women.
Every year in the UK 43,000 people are newly diagnosed with bowel cancer.

Dr Anisha Patel is one of them. Young, fit, and married to a consultant gastroenterologist and bowel cancer screening specialist, in 2018 she was diagnosed with Stage 3 bowel cancer.

Despite being a family doctor, Anisha had no idea what would come next. With the benefit of hindsight, and after first-hand experience, she understands now that the diagnosis is just the beginning, that treatment can be physically and mentally overwhelming, and that the hard work really starts when the treatment ends.

Drawing on her own experience and her medical expertise, as well as that of specialists in the field, Anisha's book is an essential companion for anyone facing a cancer diagnosis. She outlines what to expect at each stage, from diagnosis, through treatment and into the 'new normal' that awaits, with practical advice and emotional guidance for every step of the way.

Hers is not the only voice; here you will find a chorus of individuals who share their own lived experiences of bowel cancer and its aftermath, in the hope that they, too, can navigate you through the eye of the cancer storm, to thrive in the life beyond.

Powerful and personal, this is a life-saving book for a life-changing diagnosis, and a testament to human resilience and the enduring power of hope.
