The C List : Colons, Clinics, Chemo and (Quite a Lot of) Cake ... How I Survived Bowel Cancer Paperback


When facing with advanced cancer, the first thing this author did was look for other books from long time survivors of stage 4 bowel cancer to give her something to hold on to. Finding none, she wrote her own. With a wicked, taboo-breaking sense of humour and a gift for practicality, she shares her experiences and the lists she made to gain some control over what quickly became an unpredictable life. Both funny and poignant, she vividly describes the absurd situations she finds herself in from a brutally flippant surgeon to dating after cancer.Most of all this book is a gift for anyone looking for hope is a desperate situation."I highly recommend it to everyone, because sooner or later we will all know someone who faces this or face it ourselves and she offers a lot of wisdom and is downright funny, in a British-humor way. (She points out the rather troubling question on a pre-op form "Is there anything else that the surgeon or anesthesiologist should know?") It's hard to convey how charming and chatty the author is.

By the end, you feel that she is a friend, or you wish she was, and that she has given the world a beautiful gift with this book".
