Dr Philippa tells you what it is like living with cancer from the unique position of both patient and doctor. Her diary is honest and heart-wrenching and yet there were still moments I found myself laughing along with her... definitely worth a read.
It is a true act of bravery to so honestly depict the whirlwind of thoughts, emotions and feelings that Philippa shares in this most candid narration of a real-life cancer journey. Heart-breaking and enlightening, and reminds us of the vital importance of just sitting and holding the hands of our loved ones.
This is a book about cancer but it is so very much more: it is about life, parenthood, relationships and everything that makes us human. Once I started reading I could not put it down. You will go on Philippa's journey with her, so vividly does she describe the emotional roller coaster that cancer brings. This book should be a must for all of us, not just for those whose lives have been touched by cancer.
This is a warm, honest and witty account of a woman's journey though bowel cancer as a doctor and a patient. I couldn't put it down. I wish her advice had had been available when I was diagnosed myself
We all know someone with cancer, or have had it ourselves, but if you really want to know what they are going through then read Doctors Get Cancer Too. Dr Kaye will make you cry and laugh at her experiences on both sides of the doctor-patient divide. One not to miss.
