Just married and newly pregnant Sue finds a lump in her breast. This is her intimate diary
On honeymoon and two months pregnant, Sue discovers a lump in her breast. This is her raw, unpolished diary as she navigates the diagnosis and treatment of cancer. Brutally honest, she faces the overwhelming terror of the road ahead – for herself and her unborn daughter.
Her candid diary entries reflect the impact the disease has on her marriage and impending motherhood. It ends with Tips for Cancer Warriors – signposts and guidelines for those following in her footsteps.
This remarkable and compelling memoir will empower others to feel whatever they need to feel as they battle this disease – it’s their cancer.

The tips she provides after taking us through the emotional, silent, journey of her diary are simply those: tips for ensuring whoever gets the diagnosis and is going through treatment remains the centre of the process, not the cancer.

The book charts the progress of post-traumatic growth, finding meaning and benefits in the process. It is all connected to loving, intimate and meaningful relationships, and the all-consuming role of motherhood. An inspiring brave memoir with wide cleavage.
Do You Still Have Cleavage invites its readers to allow their own emotional reactions to breast cancer to flow and ebb.
