“A book that will serve as an important resource to so many people”
I’ve been through cancer – testicular cancer. I’ve had chemotherapy. I’ve had to call my mum and tell her the news. In short, if you’re doing cancer, I know what you’re going through.
I wrote Lessons from my Left Testicle because every book I read while doing the treatment was so sombre. Yes, cancer is serious stuff but that’s more reason to find happy in the everyday. I figure if you can find funny in the tough times then that’s a good lesson for when things are better.
Cancer is terrifying, painful & scary. But there’s another side too. It makes you realise friends and family are all that matter and your time here is precious. I tried to think about such things while doing treatment then write them down so I never forgot. Lessons from my Left Testicle is the book it became.
Some have called it a guidebook to help prepare you for what you’re in for. Some find it therapeutic to know others feel the things they do.
What makes me happy is when people see it as a companion, like they had a friend with them along the way.Read more on my blog
