I really enjoyed this. The author is an Irish writer who lives in Dublin, and this is her journal entries as she is diagnosed with and fights cancer in her jaw. Her husand travels a lot for work, so while she has his support, she must often rely on her children and friends in her day to day battle. Fighting the cancer is a full time job, whether she's in the hospital or just going in for daily treatments, which is something I don't feel I have grasped in reading other books that deal with cancer ...more

A brutally honest, touching and occasionally laugh-out-loud funny account of one woman's journey with cancer. Lia finds a lump, a sore that won't go away in her mouth and finds herself undergoing radical surgery and radiotherapy to fix things. She keeps notes and a diary and this is the result, a story of her travel through cancer and her voyage to the new world of post-cancer self. Well written, I look forward to reading more by her.

An at times brutally honest account of the author's own experience of mouth cancer, from diagnosis through to radiotherapy. Very frank and moving. A real survival story.
