“ My head went down - CANCER, BOTH SIDES! “
My world stood still, facing simultaneous bilateral invasive breast cancer from both sides as a doctor and patient.
After extensive surgeries, chemo and then dealing with the discovery of a significant BRCA1 mutation, there is also a need for emotional healing to return to a busy career in medicine. A world where I now give back with new purpose.
This is a handbook of poems and healing tools I used to help my mind through the trials of adversity - the determination and perseverance to push forwards or see things differently. It is an emotional compass for those facing challenges through the storms of chaos - from Both Sides.
Proceeds of this book are donated to support cancer charities.
