“Since being diagnosed in 2009, I’ve regularly been asked by newly diagnosed women for tips and information on my experience. I’ve also been there to support friends and family members of recently diagnosed women, giving them an insight into my experience and how they could offer their support. I’m sure you can imagine; the news is shocking enough to take in, never mind where to start and what to do next. So I wrote this book as the essential guide!”
