Laughing at cancer is a unique book based on a series of journals following the author's shock diagnosis of bowel cancer at 43. Brimming with humour, insight and sensitivity, it explores how we talk about and view illness, and how changing your mindset can do wonders on the journey to health. Through explanations of mindful healing techniques and the power of laughter, Laughing at cancer is both a touching memoir and powerful healing guide for anyone undergoing a significant health or life challenge, and not specifically cancer. Wellbeing and mindfulness healing techniques at the conclusion of each chapter empower readers and provide strategies to enhance resilience - a factor often diminished by ill health.
