You Decide What ‘C’ Stands For – an emotive book by Ross author
Ross-on-Wye resident, Sarah Davies, has recently had a book published called You Decide What ‘C’ Stands For, which delves into the emotional experience of a daughter and her mum as they travel a lonely and devastating journey through ovarian cancer.
The book is written from the daughter’s perspective, with the main aim of the book to raise awareness of one of the silent killers of many generations. Sarah told Ross-on-line: “Its mission is to empower all women and their loved ones who endure this overwhelming and devastating slog.”
Designed to take away the confusion of jargon, Sarah has also taken time to offer simple explanations used within the world of ovarian cancer terminology. She also shares tips and ideas that brought comfort and support during her mum’s experience.
From the initial numbness of the words said to her mum: ‘I’m sorry you have ‘C’ through the rollercoaster ride that navigates their uncontrollable voyage, the author has left nothing out. Her story is raw, emotional, and honest from start to finish.
Sarah said: “You Decide What ‘C’ Stands For strives to help if you are in a similar situation. What you are feeling is ‘normal’. This is a time when you are facing your biggest fears and you’re at your most vulnerable. A time when nothing makes much sense in your world.
“You are never alone. Despite what you think.”
This is a story of a mother and daughter’s love and their changing roles as the ‘C’ is enforced upon them and shatters any threads of normality. This is a survival story of determination and the unwavering bravery of two remarkable women.
Sarah is keen to raise awareness of this horrific disease and hopes this book helps people. 10% of all profits go to Ovacome, one of the UK’s leading ovarian cancer charities.
The book is available to purchase from Amazon: https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B08Q6SQX4J/ref=cm_sw_em_r_mt_dp_MR0FQXYY28PHKTMRXV8B and she hopes to have it in bookshops once they reopen.
