The Astrocytoma Diaries
23rd May 2014. The day I was diagnosed with a brain tumour.
I faced diagnosis. I faced surgery (awake!) I faced radiotherapy. I faced chemotherapy.
I got my treatment and I’m still here.
During treatment, I tried to keep a diary, a place to share my hopes and frustrations. It was also a place to discover a lot about myself, where humour and movies and music made the experience all the more bearable.
This is not something anyone should ever have to go through. But this is how I came this far and tried to kick its ass.
Some of the proceeds for this book will go to charities and services that helped me through this war, and the international charities that encourage other people to keep up the good fight: Beaumont Hospital Foundation, The Friends Of St. Luke’s, The Irish Cancer Society, FCancer & Stand Up To Cancer.
