Cancer Sucks! but we’ve got to talk about it…

Cancer Sucks! but we’ve got to talk about it…

Cancer isn’t an easy thing to talk about: Nobody knows what you’re going through, how you’re really feeling, or even what to say. It can be an exhausting, isolating, experience – especially when all you want is a brew and a chat.

Cancer Quips is a book born out of positivity and connections with other people. When author Brenda Burling began gathering stories for her work, she realised the love, community and power that came from men and women opening up about their cancer journeys. What’s more, she realised just how much this connection could help others.

In that moment, Brenda realised how important it would be to share these stories. Some are laugh-out-loud funny, some are heartwarming and others are so absurd you’d think they were made up. Sometimes truth is stranger than fiction!

Cancer Quips combines Brenda Burling’s previous two books Might Make You Smile and Good For a Grin into one easy to read volume designed to provide a knowing ear to anyone on a journey with The Big C.
