This is a poetic account of Freya Pickards horrendous experience of bowel cancer.
Diagnosed with terminal cancer, she undergoes several major operations to remove the tumour and then endures 6 months of chemotherapy. Only after that can she begin to recover. In order to cope with what she was experiencing, Freya wrote notes and poems in her journal nearly every day.
If you or anyone you know is going through cancer treatment of any kind, this is a book you have to read.
Freya knows. Freya understands. Freya survived.
“Freya here expresses the full scope (of cancer), in her own way, of the rigors of the experience, and, I think, puts it in a form that fully describes its horrors as well as hope.” —Troy
