Breakfast, School Run, Chemo - Julia Watson

Julia Watson was a young mum of four, trying to study and juggle home life with her husband when she was diagnosed with bowel cancer.  This book chronicles her life from diagnosis to now, and includes many of her published articles and blog posts.  You have to admire the girl, and I loved her honesty about her struggle, especially when people think you should be upbeat all the time and look at the positives.  It's pretty rubbish being told you have a terminal illness, and you can understand her fear of leaving her family and her lovely life.  Terrifying stuff.
