Cellmates

“Remarkably beautiful, powerful and uplifting” (Andrew Anderson, Maggie's Centre). 'I'm Rose. John and I shared nearly eight years of our lives together. For the last three years cancer anchored us together. This is our story, of how two ordinary people live with the diagnosis, the check-ups, the disappointments, the relief, the questions, the answers, the operations, the recovery, the emergencies, the denial, the acceptance, the anger, the pain, the loss, the love, the fear, the frustration and the happiness.' Shortly before he died, John made Rose promise to share their story – to tell what they had learned, practically and emotionally, and convey the hope they found even in the darkest of times. He had discovered her hidden stash of letters and diary entries, which she'd neither censored nor intended others to read. The result is an astonishing, searingly honest, real-time account that reveals our profound capacity for love and how the human spirit can endure the most harrowing of tests to emerge dauntless, flying free. (Caution: contains graphic descriptions of suffering that some may find distressing.)
