This book is not a book for children, but is a book for pretty much everyone else. It chronicles Tommy's year-long (and more) battle with stage four inoperable throat cancer, giving a truly remarkable insight into what goes through the mind of a family man when told he's very likely to die. In his own words, and inimitable style, Tommy takes us through everything from initial diagnosis, up to and including his current battles with the after effects of his treatment.
At times, it is the funniest book Tommy has ever written. At others, it's the hardest thing you'll ever read. But even through those darker moments, Tommy's humour and good grace are never far away, and this is ultimately an uplifting read, and one that, via the original blog format, has touched thousands of cancer sufferers and their families, and helped put their feelings into words they might otherwise never have found.
Raw, honest, painful, yet often laugh-out-loud, I cannot recommend this book highly enough.
This is the story of Tommy Donbavand, a writer who writes children's books. One day in 2016 he gets the diagnose throat cancer. Tommy decides to blog about this process, about what it does to him, to his family and friends. Cancer effects not the person who has it but everyone around him. This is very personal story, a story that is strong, sad, dark and light, amazing, a story that makes you angry and laugh out loud. It really is hilarious sometimes. I am so glad Tommy is getting better and that he can now publish this wonderful, gripping book. Believe me, you won't be disappointed.
