Clare Our Story' is a very intimate account of Clare's fight against breast cancer through the eyes of her husband John. Unbeknown to Clare, John kept a very personal diary of events as they both came to terms with the enormity of Clare's illness and the unwelcome intrusion into family life. In the early days, writing the diary gave John an outlet to air his emotions, but as the weeks and months passed the diary served as a useful record of the treatments and side effects as Clare went through surgery, chemotherapy and finally radiotherapy. As well as conventional treatments offered by the clinicians, John details those alternative therapies and natural remedies that Clare insisted on using to help her through. 'Clare Our Story' provides a very touching insight into how John and Clare each dealt with Clare's diagnosis and how family and friends rallied round and offered support. 'Clare Our Story' is a frank, honest and true story and will be especially poignant to those affected my a member of the family going through cancer.
