'Chemo Stories' - Real-life stories from - and for - cancer patients

cancer, breast cancer, chemotherapy, survivor
Ali was diagnosed with breast cancer 3 years ago -
and now wants to give something back. 
There's an old saying that 'everyone has a book inside of them', and that is often most true of those that have been through a life-changing experience.

In this case, that person is Henley writer Ali S, who has conceived a book of short, true stories about chemotherapy, drawn from both her own experiences in 2014 and those of others she has contacted. 

Her book is designed to be given away freely to those that need it via hospitals, cancer care units, charities and libraries.

A positive focus 


Ali hopes that the book will bring comfort or reassurance to cancer patients who are currently having treatment, expecting their chemotherapy to start and those that have had chemotherapy.  The stories will be candid and honest (because chemo is brutal, Ali explains) but also focus on the positive things that people can do to help themselves and each other. 

And to realise her dream of getting those free copies to everyone that needs them, Ali has launched a crowdfunding campaign to help her write, publish and distribute the book. She's set a target of raising £12,000, with £3,390 already pledged. Perhaps you'd like to add to that sum before her campaign ends on the 16th June?

    These curtains will make them prone to tangles

    What is the only way to hang the bed?

    Place towels on the floor below the curtain.

    Fill a spray bottle with 2 cups warm water and 2-3 drops of dish detergent

    Wipe clean with a damp, damp cotton cloth, and lightly rub on dirty areas as needed.

    Allow to dry and remove the bed sheet background.

    Waste residue

    Some velvet curtains are machine washable while others need dry cleaning. Check the manufacturer's label

    In general, lined velvet curtains should be treated as dry and clean only.
