When Sue Wheeler's worst nightmare of being diagnosed with breast cancer came true, she found the hidden strength to stay positive, and to tackle the huge mountain facing her.

One of her key decisions was to wear a wig when out in public, rather than hats and scarves, because she `never wanted to look like a cancer patient'. This new, stunning look provided a tremendous contribution to challenging peoples' perceptions of what patients can achieve and how they can look throughout treatment.

This personal one-year diary highlights Sue's positive attitude towards cancer and its treatment, and some of the strategies she adopted to get through it, such as continuing to work part-time, socialising with friends and family, and regularly walking her dog.

This is an essential read for cancer patients, and their families and friends, to see what a difference a fantastic wig can make to patients' self esteem and confidence during a difficult, emotional and relentless treatment regime. It's a true example of how to remain totally positive and focused on recovery.
