    Great book.

    I wish a copy of this book had been available back at the end of last year when I started my bowel cancer journey. As it is, I am lucky enough to have finished my treatment and am currently in remission, so I have read this with ‘insider’ knowledge. I have to say that Deborah’s thoughts and insights are spot on. She gets to the heart of the thoughts, fears and feelings of going into the unknown as only someone who has experienced it can, but not only that, she throws in plenty of practical advice along the way. I want to thank Deborah for being out there, unselfishly sharing her experiences and helping others to deal with the b***ard cancer. I sincerely hope her future is a long one.

    Brilliant service from seller

    After not receiving the first book ordered, the seller went above and beyond to send me another one, they kept in touch of the progress throughout. I have given them 5 stars now because of this, now retracting my previous review, as I have not yet started to read the book so cannot comment on that, but at a glance through it seems a very informative and detailed to keep us all aware of this terrible disease, also because it’s the beautiful and courageous Deborah James, I wanted to read this.

    Wake up People FFS.

    Wake up People. You need to take natural remedies as they work but you need to believe it, mind over matter is key here.People will gladly put Radiation, Chemo in themselves but cannot believe hydrogen peroxide should go anywhere near our bodies as they are told it’s bleach.well It’s not, It is a water molecule, H2O, with one added atom of oxygen = H2O2. Your bodies PH, abbreviation for ‘Potential Hydrogen’, which means, to acidic (low ph) not enough oxygen in your blood , which is needed to kill the bodies bad guys. Our thyroid, leukocytes’white blood cells’, release H2o2 when a problem arises so it is very important!Please read about the cynide, like in apricot seeds or mms, dmso etc etc.

    A POWERFUL, HONEST AND TRULY SUPERB BOOK! BUY IT!

    Being a huge fan of not only Deborah, but Lauren and Rachael too, I couldn’t wait to get stuck in to this. I didn’t disappoint. Deboah’s strength of character shines through. Her determination and her honesty, alongside her caring, compassionate and numerous nature will have you booked from the first page.Well done Deborah, I couldn’t put it down! 👌💪💖

    One woman’s personal experience of cancer

    I found this book generally useful but it wasn’t focused on bowel cancer as I’d expected. This book is one woman’s experience on being diagnosed with stage 4 bowel cancer and attempts to give the reader an idea of what to expect when told you have cancer. I think the book is generally a good read as it is a personal experience but I would not recommend it as a factual or practical guide to bowel cancer.

    Worthwhile…

    Sadly, most people will be drawn to this book because they have or know someone who has Cancer. I was unsure if it would be welcome by someone who is fed up with the big C in their life. But it’s an easy, humorous well written read and reassuring for those who feel they are suffering alone. I would recommend it to all. If Cancer is in your life, I sincerely hope things work out for you. Best of luck.

    Deborah demonstrates in her excellent book that you can still really enjoy life with the big C!

    Yes, I’m part of the club nobody wants to become a member of …….. but as a stage 4 MBC your book is fantastic! Two copies have just arrived and I can’t stop reading it! One copy of for me and the other to be passed round my friends with the hope they start understanding me a little more. I can’t put into words how inspirational you are and of course, like you, I also miss Rach loads.

    This book gave me a greater understanding of how cancer affects people’s lives..

    I found this a really interesting read and admire Deborah for managing to put this together whilst living with cancer and being a parent. I am not a member of the big C club myself but wanted to read this to get some idea of what people living with cancer go through. The book and it’s title does not profess to give the “inside scoop” on what to expect living specifically with bowel cancer. It is intended as a support generally to those who have a cancer diagnosis. To those reviewing the book and giving it low ratings or negative/critical comments, I’m sorry but I think you should have read the title a bit clearer before purchasing/reading. It says “How to face the big C, live your life and still be yourself”. It doesn’t advertise itself on being about bowel cancer just because this is the type of cancer the author has.Hats off to you Deborah for a great book full of advice and support for those with cancer and their loved ones. It’s certainly given me a better understanding, being an admin worker in the NHS, what people with cancer may well be going through.

    A true insight

    Thank you Deborah for the amazingly accurate and truthful insight into the horrendous world of stage 4 cancer. I am stage 4 breast and identify so much with everything you say. It’s reassuring to read that everyone like us shares the same fears and terror – because to me it feels like the loneliest place on earth.But you’re able to stay upbeat and describe ways to remain positive in nightmarish times, and with humour.A must read for anyone with cancer and for those without. It shows how we are some of the strongest people around, living every single day under the sword of Damocles.I wish ‘us’ all many many more years with our loved ones, enjoying life.

    Deborah James you’re amazing. So is this book. Thank you.

    I have metastatic breast cancer. Deborah has bowel cancer. It’s totally different. But so much is still the same: being blind sided by a scary diagnosis; dealing with altering prognoses; getting through treatment eventually; coping with the anxiety of regular scans and the terror of being pretty certain it will be back but hoping somehow that it won’t, because statistics can’t tell us anything for certain. She has tips for it all and for communicating with the people who love us and go through it all with us.This book is so real, and it’s full of great advice in small, digestible, mini-headings (with top tips at the end of each chapter). I would recommend it to anyone with any type of cancer at any stage. Deborah James’ instagram name is @bowelbabe and she is a babe. She rocks high heels, short skirts and lippy, but she thinks deep which is why this book is for everyone, men and women. It is about how to feel the best you can. There are no guilt trips; no insistence on being positive, only suggestions for ‘using our mind in a positive way to help us deal with all that is thrown at us.’ The chapter on children is exceptionally thoughtful, and she’s spot on with her focus on being kind to yourself and celebrating milestones, big and small.With very good reason she has a great deal of time for her health team at the Royal Marsden, just as I have for my team at Guy’s who’ve kept me alive for seven years. Both of us believe that the most helpful comment ever came early on when they said ‘we just want you to know we’re going to throw the kitchen sink at this.’ Thank God for the NHS.We both began this roller-coaster with needle phobias; both got to a day when we were too scared to look in the mirror in case we wouldn’t recognize the reflection; and both ended up feeling, and I quote: ‘I’m proud of what my body has been through; I am sexy; these scars make me unique and I love them and they’re keeping me alive.’ As Deborah says ‘you will become braver and stronger than you ever thought possible because you have no other choice.’ If you’re just starting on this journey into the unknown read this book and let it show you you’re definitely not alone.
