About Hand In The Dark

Hand In The Dark has several priorities found between its covers. It's not just aimed at those who have cancer themselves, but those surrounding it too. Close family, friends, or carers alike? This is for you.

So join me and learn about the darkest days created by such a journey, whilst discovering the potential positives from a bad situation. 


When the escalating process of cancer develops, there are those that sometimes need help but cannot find it. Whether this book helps one person or a thousand, to me, it retains its importance.

This book is dedicated to my Mother; for however much we have experienced together and however much has happened, she has felt it insurmountably more. One of my few heroines and heroes, I am always able to look up to her.
