Fighting the odds

ByTherese Leignel

Usually printed in 3 - 5 business days
All proceeds will go to Cancer Research “Thérèse Leignel hitch-hiked her way to London to escape the taboos and oppressions of mid-1970’s France but, in August 2008, her world falls apart when she is diagnosed with a one-in-a-million form of cancer. While convinced she will pull through, she tells her life story through flashbacks and we are overwhelmed with admiration to see her turn this and other setbacks into comebacks. She inspires the reader and tells us to find our strength by searching within to seek “where we turn our tragedies into hopes and the spirit of life heightens the magic in us, to keep on fighting for those hopes to be fulfilled as we carry out our journey” In a world so full of confusion she concludes “In life, we do not possess anything except our story” and her undying joie de vivre comes to life throughout the pages of her first novella.” Catherine Beaufort
