Dear Cancer, Love Victoria Book
In 2015, Victoria Derbyshire found herself with a devastating breast cancer diagnosis. With honesty and openness in DEAR CANCER, LOVE VICTORIA she shares her day to day experiences of life following her diagnosis and coming to terms with a future that wasn't planned. From the moment she woke up to find her right breast had collapsed, to telling her partner and children, through to mastectomy and chemotherapy. By sharing her story, she became the person that mums, daughters, sisters, husbands, boyfriends and family members contacted to thank as they tried to find ways to cope with their own and their loved ones' prognosis and needed to know that they were not alone.
According to Good Housekeeping “this book should be handed out on the NHS” and whilst unfortunately it isn't available on the NHS, you can get it here instead.

Our luxurious satin pillowcase is handmade from high quality satin. Silk and satin pillowcases are known for being kind to both hair and skin. Satin's smooth surface creates less friction for hair strands that have been left fragile from breast cancer treatment and so helps to prevent breakage. Satin also provides essential cooling properties for those suffering from night sweats, another unwelcome side effect of some breast cancer treatments.
