For anyone, a cancer diagnosis elicits fear and an explosion of emotion; John W.Pattison presents a unique and fascinating insight into the trials and tribulations of a cancer patient and the permanent psychological legacy they must accept. A love affair with cancer is a scintillating exploration of the mind of a young, immature adolescent who is gripped by the deathly hold of cancer and its mind numbing consequences. . A true, yet poignant and tearful story, but also funny and inspirational. Everyone needs inspiration in life and John was no different. Throughout his journey, his was music and a band called Hawkwind and who remained a constant driving force during his troubled cancer journey. . His fate was woven into the tapestry of life. On more than one occasion, he was forced to confront his own mortality, yet he made something of an unexpected recovery, but only eight years after that recovery he is devastated by the news that all parents fear, his daughter has terminal leukaemia, leaving him once again to walk the long lonely road of emotional turbulence. However, despite the opinion of the medical experts, Donna goes into a spontaneous remission to become an international swimmer. . A unique chronicle, unlike any other cancer story ever told. Cancer took hold of his life and manipulated it into what he has become today, a clinical nurse specialist in haematology caring for other individuals with the same cancers that he and Donna had suffered many years earlier, it truly is, a love affair with cancer. . A story of heart-warming exuberance that will stimulate every emotion.
