Writing my book, Liberation – Breaking The Chains To Survival And Freedom was a huge thing to do, revealing so much of my personal ‘stuff’ with cancer to shed light on what we really go through — in our heads, in our hearts, and in our deepest fears and subconscious.
The devastation of being diagnosed with Hodgkin’s Lymphoma was a crushing blow. The intense love for my family is where I found my strength to face the journey itself, while dealing with the possibility of losing my battle to cancer.
Reliving these experiences has been a secondary journey in itself. And now my book is available on Amazon! Read the very personal accounts on how I broke through the chains of cancer, through the highs and the lows, for my very own piece of salvation — Liberation.
Thousands of people lose their lives to lymphoma – a type of blood cancer — that we never really hear about. Lymphoma is the 5th most common cancer in Australia, but is overlooked on a global scale. Sadly, it can take a patient anywhere from six months to a year, sometimes longer, to discover their tumours. The symptoms it carries are often ignored, simply because there is not enough awareness. Which I why I wrote this book!
Before chemotherapy, I researched the internet to find out more about this blood cancer — experiences form real people living with this disease. I wanted to know about every emotion, every experience, from people living with cancer. So I made a promise to write about every detail throughout my journey and eventually (6 months later), about life after cancer.
