Mandy Brown, author of 'Nipples to Kneecaps - to die or not to die with cancer' reads an extract from Chapter 1 The Death Sentence. Steve was given 3 months to live in 1986 with terminal cancer. No treatment was offered as he was 'full of cancer'. Mandy was determined this would not be the end.

Daddy love! Playing games as if every second counted….because, well, they did! Chapter 9: New Game, New Shame in 'Nipples to Kneecaps - to die or not to die with cancer' will certainly highlight this. "Not only is this book an inspiration and education for anyone who is unfortunate enough to have cancer touch their lives. It is also a very personal and uplifting read."
