We beat leukaemia. My family's journey with childhood cancer (2015)

I_AM Self-Publishing

My son Andrew was only three years old when he was diagnosed with Leukaemia. Now he’s a healthy, happy six-year-old. We Beat Leukemia is my honest account of chemo, childhood and being a mummy to cancer – written over 1235 days from diagnosis to remission. I started writing daily posts to record the highs and lows, frustrations and elations of his childhood cancer treatment. My posts and photos form this book. I’m sharing my family’s experience to raise awareness of childhood cancer (and the UK charities who can offer so much), but also to offer support to families facing the challenges that any child cancer diagnosis brings. I hope to make a difference in the cancer community. (Publisher)

Given time to say goodbye (2015)

Three Boys Publishing

‘Given time to say goodbye’ is a profoundly honest and true story of a daughter who loses both parents to cancer. The author, Dianne Leutner, a Dutch national, living in England takes the reader on a journey from the simple happiness of undisturbed family life with a young family through the roller coaster of emotion that comes with a diagnosis of terminal cancer to, eventually, death – or in her case multiple deaths – in the family. She tells her story with exemplary clarity and honesty as she faces the illness and death of both parents, not shying away from a candid appraisal of family dynamics and personal emotions. Living in the UK whilst her parents were dying in the Netherlands was also a major obstacle. The family kept a blog during both illnesses some of which also features in the book. The other voices bring a reality and genuineness to the text. The blog includes the voice that is often lost, of the person experiencing terminal cancer. There will be much that will chime with readers who have been involved in the daily care of people at the end of their lives and who have known bereavement. It is not always easy to be interested in someone else’s family and yet we are drawn into the lives of these ordinary people who are remarkable in their own way. They show us that there is great possibility for growth, love and true wonder in all emotions. Dianne illustrates beautifully that we will all experience grief differently and that our experiences will be a reflection of the unique relationship we have with ourselves and our dearly departed. ‘Given time to say goodbye’ is not a memoir filled with answers but the unravelling of grief into hope, revealing light that leads you forward.
