Jacqueline's Diary - When Cancer Came to Visit

This is one of the most harrowing accounts by a cancer sufferer I have ever read; I have a collection of cancer books possibly numbered in the hundreds. From what Jacqueline went through, it is probably a miracle that she is alive, although she is now thriving. The book is written in the form of a diary and covers about 1 year. It is a sad tale of ineptitude in my view of some of the medical professionals and hospital staff who permitted this woman to endure extreme pain and the agony of virtually ‘bleeding to death’, which most definitely happened to Jacqueline. Jacqueline’s mother features throughout the book in the starring role of a guardian angel.

Keto for Cancer

This book is at the same time dramatic, technically and clinically demanding yet always authoritative. Miriam Kalamian’s son was dying from a brain tumour following surgery and chemotherapy. She ‘stumbled’ upon a research paper from Dr Thomas Seyfried’s laboratory in the USA reporting significant clinical regression in mice of the deadly tumour glioblastoma multiforme following a calorie-restricted ketogenic diet over an 8-week period. Starting from scratch and with help from others including The Charlie Foundation non-profit organization devoted to ketogenic diets for epilepsy, she exceptionally prolonged for 9 years her son Raffi’s life, and also professionally trained and qualified EdM - Master Education, MS- Master of Human Nutrition and CNS – Board Certified in Nutrition. Miriam now helps patients to develop and implement personalized nutritional and lifestyle programs for cancer patients as well as those with other conditions.

Every-Body-Tells a Story

This is an enjoyable and highly readable book; as well as being originally conceived and thought-provoking, it is not the usual technical, instructive or educational bodywork title filled with anatomically- labelled diagrams. Every Body Tells a Story by craniosacral therapists Liz Kalinowska  and Daška Hatton tells the story of a ‘fictionalized’ client named Anna undergoing 10 craniosacral therapy treatment sessions, narrated after each session from the point of view of the client - Anna, the therapist - Sarah, and sometimes the supervising therapists – Liz and Daška.

Under Cover of Darkness - How I Blogged My Way Through Mantle Cell Lymphoma

This riveting thriller of a book is the closest thing to a ‘fly-on-the-wall’ story of the roller coaster ride on which Margaret Cahill embarked following her shocking and wholly unexpected cancer diagnosis upon her return with partner Stephen in 2012 from an Astrology Conference in New Orleans USA.
