Congratulations on compiling such a wonderful book and thank you for giving me the opportunity to read it. It's been a very moving read but in many ways uplifting and enjoyable. I don't think there is anything else like it out there - such a rich, insightful and varied collection of narratives. The illustrations are a great idea and bring a wonderful visual dimension. I believe that it will be a tremendous resource for a wide variety of people.

A review written by Dr M Comisky on 20 Jun 2017 for Connecting with Cancer
An amazing range of stories
I thoroughly enjoyed reading “Connecting with Cancer”. What an amazing range of stories, all with different perspectives and assembled it in such a thoughtful way – and the illustrations are fabulous. The book was an eye opener for me. I found that it made cancer more real to me, something more than just a medical condition; it actually made me think about the whole picture of what it means to go through cancer.

A really good read!
“Connecting with Cancer” is a really ‘good read’. By that I mean that each entry, diary and note draws you on to the next one. The illustrations are excellent and really add to the content. It is such a friendly book, so approachable and so informative, just like the medics should be. In addition to being useful for those with cancer I thought it would be a useful tool for anyone dealing with bereavement.
