The Highs, Lows And Unexpected Gifts of Cancer

Rachel Haynes survived bowel cancer, not once, but twice. There have been many unexpected consequences … this is her story. Exploring the ups and downs of treatment, with sensitivity, humour and brutal honesty, Rachel reflects on the psychological impacts of survival not only on herself but on those who have supported her.

Bowel cancer, despite being the UK’s second biggest cancer killer still receives a shockingly low level of funding. This book aims in a small way to help this but to also tell Rachel’s unique story of survival. Her experience presents a wake-up call to what’s important in life and the truth about surviving against the odds. What lies beneath survival is the realisation that the end of treatment is not the end of the story.
