Six months to live? I don’t think so. Judi’s journals (2016)

Arthur H Stockwell

In July 2006 Judi Seall was diagnosed with terminal cancer and given six months to live. Did she give in to this horrible disease? Not at all, and now, nine years later, she has decided to publish the journals she wrote whilst undergoing treatment and beyond. These journals are a full and frank description of how her life changed, due not only to the cancer, but also to the chemotherapy and radiotherapy treatment she received. They tell of her highs and lows, how friends and family rallied round, of new friends made and also, sadly, of friends lost. They will make you laugh, they will make you cry, but they will also make you realise what people go through in their quest to conquer this disease. Judi has raised in the region of GBP9,500 for local Hospices and all royalties from the sales of this book will be donated to Macmillan. (Publisher)
