about


When facing with advanced cancer, the first thing this author did was look for other books from long time survivors of stage 4 bowel cancer to give her something to hold on to.  Finding none, she wrote her own.  With a wicked, taboo-breaking sense of humour and a gift for practicality, she shares her experiences and the lists she made to gain some control over what quickly became an unpredictable life.  Both funny and poignant, she vividly describes the absurd situations she finds herself in from a brutally flippant surgeon to dating after cancer.


Most of all this book is a gift for anyone looking for hope is a desperate situation.

Rachel Bown has 2 teenagers, runs her own business, and found surprisingly, that one of the gifts of discovering she had bowel cancer was her ability to write with disarming honesty and humour etc.

Editorial Reviews

"Countless books have been written about the Big C - how to fight it, how to survive it, even how to accept it when the doctors say they can do no more, but The C List stands out from the crowd for it's originality and good humour.  "Packed with sage advice, Rachel's lists, compiled during her cancer experiences, are funny, spot on and at times a little sad.  "The C List offer something for everyone affected by cancer, whether they are fighting the disease themselves or are caring for someone who is.  The book's USP is that much of what Rachel wants you to know is presented in easy-to-follow lists, even if some of the lists themselves are plain bonkers!"  --Mathew Wright, The Wright Stuff
