Tea & Chemo: Fighting Cancer, Living Life

Tea & Chemo is another humorous account of a women battling the unexpected diagnosis of cancer. The author, Jackie Buxton, a writer by trade, immediately pulled out a pen and paper to begin documenting her journey. She was lucky to find out that her cancer could be treated, trying not to be crippled by the fear that it might spread unexpectedly. She describes how she’s become an expert in the field of hairloss, water retention, and biscuits, and stresses the importance of laughing whenever possible, even through the most challenging time of your life.

One of the best parts of this book is that 100% of the profits go to three different charities: The Haven, Breast Cancer Now and The Robert Ogden Macmillan Centre and Harrogate. These charities focus on improving the lives of individuals and cancer sufferers through their astounding compassion and professionalism. Jackie Buxton has created a truly inspirational masterpiece that's an easy read for cancer sufferers, family members, and those who haven’t yet been touched by cancer.
