Breakfast, School Run, Chemo: the Sometimes Funny, Definitely Not Depressing, True Story of a Mum with Cancer
Mother of four girls Julia Watson thought her world was falling apart when she found out she had terminal cancer. But with humour and courage, Julia faces the greatest challenge of her life - and in the process becomes the person she'd always wanted to be.
A survivor of child abuse, brought up by a mother with mental illness, Julia was no stranger to adversity. After her daughter Georgie was born with Down syndrome, she thought she'd faced it all. But when doctors offer her the chance of risky but potentially life-saving surgery, Julia faces her toughest situation yet.
Follow Julia and her family, as she writes her way through the crisis, chases her dreams, gets her dancing shoes on and discovers the lighter side of life with a colostomy bag.
This is a candid, entertaining look at life with cancer and living each day with humour and hope.
Julia Watson blogs at Five Fairies and a Fella, and her articles have been published on Essential Baby. She lives in Melbourne.
