My Journey: Living with Metastatic Breast Cancer by Lavinia Urban
Published 28th February 2018
123 pages

I finished this book 2 days ago and I am still thinking about it whilst I am writing this review. Lavinia Urban is a fantasy writer who has attended the last 2 Darker events. When she appeared in 2017 she was still going through treatment and whilst I knew she had Cancer, this is her story from day one and what she has been through.
As I was reading this, I was reminded how strong a woman Lavinia is and what a great family she has surrounding her. Going in to detail you realise just how harsh the treatment was and Lavinia does not hold any punches explaining things. We probably all know someone who has been hit with the big C and this explains such a lot that only someone who has been through it will know.
As you are reading this book you are laughing and crying as you follow her journey. One instance was when she talked about learning to do her eyebrows and she said that she was a sharpie expert. Added to this book are plenty of photos and it was good to see some taken at Darker 2107.
This is a must book for everyone who is going through or about to start treatment. If there is one thing you learn is to remain positive.
I know that this review does not give this book the justice its deserve. I for one am glad that I read it.
