You have been told you have an incurable disease and only months to live. What do you do? How will you cope?
Just before his 65th birthday, Bernard Crix was told he had untreatable cancer and that he would die within a few months. However, he was then referred to a London hospital that agreed to treat him even though the chances of success were slim.
This is the story of what he felt, thought and what he did as well as the reactions of those close to him. Whilst the doctors were dealing with the illness in his body, he had to learn how to cope with it in his mind. He felt that he needed to be realistic but to remain positive and avoid being overwhelmed by the odds against him.
What could be a harrowing tale is told with both honesty and humour. It does not preach to the reader. It is simply the personal story of how he and others dealt with it.
The book ends with his 70th birthday party, which coincided with surviving five years: two good reasons to party.
