Synopsis

Number 1 bestseller, Shortlisted for The Peoples Book Prize 2019. Previously an expert multi-tasker in her capacity as a busy, married, forty-two-year-old mother of two, and part time lawyer commuting into London, Sara managed her life by to-do list after to-do list. However, when breast cancer appeared on her list, Sara's life was thrown upside down and she had to make a few changes.



With the combination of medical appointments, scans, and harsh treatment, Sara's dignity, grace and composure all flew out the window, but she did retain the ability to get herself organised and make a few lists to help her through the treatment. Armed with a multitude of shopping lists, to-do lists and checklists, she made it through eighteen months of gruelling cancer treatment to the other side, where, for the past couple of years, she's been basking in the glow of hair regrowth, new eyebrows and a renewed love for life.



Ticking Off Breast Cancer is a chronological narrative of Sara's life from the day of her diagnosis and throughout her treatment. It follows Sara as she deals with the physical, emotional and mental challenges thrown at her by cancer and provides an honest insight into the treatment given to a breast cancer patient together with the impact that this has on someone's life.



By sharing many of her to-do lists in the form of checklists at the end of each chapter, Ticking Off Breast Cancer provides thoughtful, helpful advice for every step of the way. Whether read as a companion for someone going through cancer treatment themselves, or as a guide for someone with a loved one or friend going through cancer treatment, Ticking Off Breast Cancer provides support and encouragement throughout.



The book accompanies Sara's website of the same name, www.tickingoffbreastcancer.com, which provides practical help and support for those going through breast cancer treatment.
