16 May Coping with the stress of cancer
I’m so pleased to have helped cancer survivor and all-round great woman Sue Mackey to get her new book, Positive Oncology: An Optimistic Approach to the Big C into news headlines in the past couple of weeks.
The book shares the techniques and strategies that helped Sue cope with the emotional impact of her own triple negative breast cancer diagnosis, as well as the gruelling periods of treatment and recovery that followed, in order to help other sufferers cope with the stress and anxiety of their condition. The more people talking about this important book, the better, and Sue has certainly been out there spreading the good word.
She spoke to ABC TV News Breakfast and 774 ABC Melbourne’s Clare Bowditch in recent weeks, and her chat with Clare in particular seems to have touched people’s hearts, with callers sharing their own affecting stories of survival. Meanwhile, Perth radio station 6PR selected it as their Book of the Week and Sue wrote this stirring editorial for her hometown newspaper, The Geelong Advertiser.
Lots more to come from this amazing woman so stay tuned!
