Death and the Elephant: How Cancer Saved My Life
Natalie Doyle Nurse consultant, Living with and Beyond Cancer, The Royal Marsden NHS Foundation Trust
The author of this book adopts an unusual perspective on the experience of cancer – he credits the disease with saving his life. Ensnared in a gambling addiction and languishing in a soulless job, he recalls feeling dispirited and wasted until a cancer diagnosis becomes the catalyst that led to a reappraisal of his life and a career in theatre.
Cancer Nursing Practice.
