Tea & Chemo: Fighting Cancer, Living Life

£7.99

Tea & Chemo: Fighting cancer, living life by Jackie Buxton.

At the age of 45, wife and mother Jackie Buxton was diagnosed with breast cancer. Lurching between the crippling fear that the cancer had spread, and the great comfort of knowing she was one of the lucky ones who could be treated, she did what she always does when life presents her with a challenge: she wrote it down.

Jackie quickly realised that even with cancer, life was far from bad. Never known for her scientific prowess, she nonetheless became a ‘bit of an expert’ – at least in the field of hair loss, water retention and biscuits – and decided to use her writing to share experiences and help others recognise you don’t have to be defined by your cancer. 

Tea & Chemo is full of laughter, tears, honesty and hope, and offers inspirational words to everyone facing the life challenges that cancer inevitably brings.

All proceeds from the sales of Tea & Chemo will go to three incredibly important charities, whose compassionate care and professionalism make the difference to so many lives: The Haven, Breast Cancer Now and The Robert Ogden Macmillan Centre, Harrogate.

Suitable For... People diagnosed with cancer or for someone looking after a loved one with cancer.

Handpicked Because... It is an upbeat, yet honest account of going through chemo for breast cancer. I would have loved to have read this when I was going through treatment myself. Other books can be a little morbid, so this is the only one I would happily recommend as a gift.
Gift Packaging... Lovingly wrapped in brown paper and tied with a ribbon with a handwritten message of your choice.

Why Not Add...  Some Queasy DropsHeadwear or Some Natural Skincare Products.
