BOOK BLOG TOUR Nipples to Kneecaps meets Cue & Review
Cue & Review BLOG TOUR 24th November Yesterday I was given a VIP badge! Very Important Person? No, in this case it stood for: Visually Impaired Person. This was quite some synchronicity as I had decided last week to choose Cue & Review as one of my Blog Stops. So who are/what is Cue & Review? Why did I choose them? Cue and Review – “Print Speaking to the Blind” transcribe print magazines and newspapers into audio format for the benefit of the visually and reading impaired. Th

A Grey House, A Grey Mouse & A Beautiful Baby Named Mae Meet Nipples to Kneecaps
BLOG TOUR Post 21st November 2017 Mae & Me A GREY HOUSE, A GREY MOUSE & A BEAUTIFUL BABY NAMED MAE Reading Mae & Me's Blog I realised that the time period Sascha is describing was the exact same time period my family (me, Steve and baby Alex) had been through, except for one major difference. We were also living with an awful diagnosis of terminal cancer. You see when Alex was 9 months old Steve, his daddy, was given three months to live. However, as you will r
Passed With Cancer - Happy Birthday Dad!
I loved the way we regularly laughed uncontrollably together with tears rolling down our faces, holding our sides trying to stop laughing and crying usually about some mishap with the wallpapering that we were hanging or some other similar shared task. You were always there with new inventions and ideas - the original problem solver king. Watching a film with the family or attending a school play, we would inevitably look at each other with a silent, "Uh, oh. Here we go again

Why 'To Die Or NOT To Die With Cancer'?
'To die or not to die with cancer' - the subtitle for the Nipples to Kneecaps was, it seems, intuitively chosen although until last week I did not realise that was the case. Last week I saw some PR copy that had an incorrect subtitle. Instead of to die or not to die with cancer, it had 'to die or live with cancer.' As I corrected it, I began to question it. It came to me, of course, here was yet another example of the mindset that we had consciously employed during that traum
Overall Aims For Nipples to Kneecaps by Author Mandy Brown
Video 3: Mandy's Chats about Nipples to Kneecaps What is my overall aim in writing Nipples to Kneecaps? My overall aim is to give you, the reader, hope and inspiration that you too can achieve the impossible. Nipples to Kneecaps is an important story to be read and shared because if you find yourself facing your worst fear, your circumstances seem hopeless, or if you ever feel powerless, you can remind yourself of Steve’s story and, as a result, feel empowered to change the p
Cry for Cancer Nipples to Kneecaps
Video 2: Mandy's Chats about Nipples to Kneecaps I have just recorded the first video about Nipples to Kneecaps and I cant believe I got so emotional after all this time. When Steve was diagnosed with just three months to live I had no time to cry, I felt I needed to direct my energy elsewhere i.e. to fighting the battle against cancer with him. Looking at that video (me all emotional and teary) you would never have guessed I found the strength to hold back those tears back t
