MY CHEMO SUMMER – A BREAST CANCER JOURNEY by JANE BISHOP
In Chemo Summer, Jane Hoggar takes the reader through a light-hearted and informative account of her discovery of breast cancer and its cure.
Cancer of any description has the capacity to chill those it affects and their loved ones. But for Jane Hoggar early discovery and diagnosis provided for a satisfactory resolution.
It’s these small details that might well help people in a similar situation. For example, Jane did not discover a lump, which is the usual thing in breast cancer, but a ‘sag’ when she raised her arms and it was her insistence that something was wrong that resulted in a vital early medical diagnosis.
All the side issues are covered in the book, effects of chemo and radiotherapy, hair loss and entertaining explanations about wigs, changes in diet and exercise, making Chemo Summer a valuable and engaging look at a serious and often frightening subject.
