This truly is a guide to Thinking, Laughing, Living & Dancing Your Way Through cancer

In Stephanie Butland’s new book – How I Said Bah! To Cancer - she takes an honest and refreshing look at how to view cancer in a different light and to use powerful thinking techniques to help readers work through their recovery process with a more positive and open attitude. Stephanie takes an unflinching yet funny look at some of the highs and lows of her dance with cancer, and shares some of the tips and tricks that got her through. She speaks honestly and movingly about what it's like to tell your teenage children you have a cancer, how to keep your sense of self when being churned through the cancer treatment cycle over and over again, and her feelings about the doctors who saved her while also wanting to make her scream with frustration.

Stephanie has strong views about the language of cancer - no 'fighting' and 'surviving' here, but 'dancing' and 'thriving' - and the steps that everyone can take to change the way cancer is perceived and treated in our society.

Stephanie draws from her experience of teaching the de Bono thinking methods alongside her own “new way of thinking” techniques. This truly is a guide to Thinking, Laughing, Living & Dancing Your Way Through cancer and one that should be in the hands of every breast cancer patient and their supporters.

“Unflinching, refreshing, layered with humour, with positivity and with honesty, Stephanie offers tips, advice and an utterly inspiring take on how to dance with cancer. ‘How I Said Bah! to cancer‘ deserves, needs and absolutely should be supported. It has the potential to change the way we view and treat cancer. Please, I urge you, seek this one out.” – Caroline Smailes
