BBC presenter and journalist Victoria Derbyshire has very kindly agreed to be part of the new book. Victoria is no stranger to cancer having been diagnosed with breast cancer in 2015. I will be meeting up with her one afternoon in May after her BBC Two daytime show finishes. This is another great coup for the book and I am very much looking forward to meeting Victoria.
My Mum passed away last August following a 4 year battle with bowel cancer. She fought it long and hard with great courage and dignity. This forthcoming book will dedicated to her memory with all proceeds raised from sales donated to the Beating Bowel Cancer charity. Bowel cancer claims 16,000 lives in the UK each year - the second highest cancer killer, but if detected early it can be successfully treated in over 90% of cases.
A big thanks to Dafydd Wyn Farr-Jones for helping to set up this photo. Dafydd, who has beaten bowel cancer, will also feature in the book.
