A wonderful read. Just the right blend of emotional highs and lows, with a dollop of humour thrown in for good measure. Never mawkish, Karen is a natural writer and survivor! Her no - nonsense, positive approach to her illness is an inspiration. I urge you to read this book and tell your friends!

Karen will take you on an emotional roller coaster from start to finish. You will laugh out loud, cry, smile and everything else along the way. A truly inspiring and inspirational read by a highly intelligent, humorous and talented woman. If you have been diagnosed, know someone who has or just enjoy a truly inspirational story, you will not be able to put this book down. I am fortunate to have known Karen and I'm sure after reading you will feel like you do to.

A fantastic book - very witty & inspiring. Helps keep things in perspective. Would highly recommend.
What a fantastic read, everyone should read this book as it gives a true insight of this illness and how Karen overcame the mountains she had to climb. The highs, lows and setbacks, but with her determination and support from her family she fought a tough battle. You will laugh and cry at the same time! a truly inspirational book, simply brilliant!
Fantastic book. True account of the journey Karen went through and her fantastic positive attitude. I laughed and cried reading this and fave me an insight as to what my best friend at the time was going through. A must read book can't wait for no 2. Well done Karen 5 Stars
Quite simply the most positive take on something that we all fear. Everyone facing serious illness should read this for one person's narrative on how to harness all of that positivity and not only survive, but flourish. No - wait. EVERYONE should read this book for how to harness positivity and flourish in the face of any serious challenge. If I have to see that day, it will be the first thing I turn to.

This book is an amazing, funny, heartbreaking and heartwarming read. Karen writes as she speaks so you get to know her as a person by reading this book. She is so positive and funny it is a lovely inspiring book.
I too had the same op with the same surgeon, I also dealt with my cancer with the same humour and positive outlook. and he has made us the strong women we are today.
This is a great gift for anyone, but I wish I had read this after I was diagnosed so I had not felt so lonely. Buy it for every woman you know it's inspirational, and supports 2 charities close to my heart too. Thank you.
