‘Our Family’s Journey Through Disability and Cancer’ Is Available to Order NOW!

I am glad to say today is the day my book is officially published as a print and ebook. It’s a book that was written to help those going through challenging times in their lives. 2020 has been a testing time for all of us as we live through Covid 19. We will probably still be wading our way through this pandemic as we see in 2021.

This book will help those who are supporting friends or family members who are going through cancer.

As a doctor myself I hope health professionals will find this book beneficial as they support patients and their families in a similar situation.

My 19 year old daughter, Kirsty, who has Down Syndrome and sadly encountered leukaemia in 2016 is the person who has inspired me to write this book. I share how as a family we lived through her cancer diagnosis for 2 and a half years.

I also describe the close sibling relationship that Kirsty and her younger sister Melissa have. Both daughters have enriched our lives. We have lots of fun memories as a family. It’s unusual not to hear laughter and giggles in our house.

Money from the sale of my book will be donated to Clic Sargent-Cancer Charity and Down Syndrome Association UK. You will read an ‘Advance praise’ from both charities in my book. I want to thank both charities for their contribution. Below are quotes from the charities.

This book gives an insight into the personal pain and uncertainty of having a child diagnosed with cancer, but even more than that a unique view of helping your child cope with treatment when they already have other needs’- Clic Sargent

Janet brings valuable lived-experienced to anyone supporting a child through treatment for leukaemia’  Down Syndrome Association

My book is available as a paperback on Amazon, and as an ebook on Kobo, Amazon, Apple and, Barnes and Noble. It is also available for wider distribution on Ingram Sparks.
