I have a series of 3 books written about my journey through diagnosis and various treatments for Stage 4 papillary thyroid cancer. The first book in the series, Thyroid Cancer for Beginners’, will be FREE from tomorrow 17th October to 21st October.
Here is a 5 star review that the paperback version has on Amazon.com
This is an easy-to-read book that gives patients diagnosed with papillary thyroid cancer a quick read on a British woman’s experience grappling with the disease. Glenda Shepherd, the author, received the shocking diagnosis when she was in her late forties. I appreciated Ms. Shepherd’s honesty–her ability to share many personal details and the feelings she was experiencing– and got a kick out of her British way of expressing herself. I think this would be a wonderful book on tape with the author reading the book with her beautiful British accent. I loved looking at the photographs and enjoyed the author’s explanation that she looked for a dress that covered her scar on her neck. I hope Ms. Shepherd will write a sequel. I particularly identified with much of what she wrote, especially the painfulness of waiting for test results and the fear of dying that is part of the experience of being a cancer patient. Bravo for Ms. Shepherd for writing about her cancer journey in a poignant, yet humorous way. I am grateful that books like Thyroid Cancer for Beginners exists for people like me to read.
