Don’t Call Me Brave

Cancer: it’s terrifying, it hurts, and occasionally it’s hilarious.

For Gemma Reece, a sarcoma diagnosis brings her safe and organised life to a halt. Swept up on a painful and emotional roller-coaster, she must also confront a tragedy in her past.
But don’t call her brave. Oh no. She is many things, but she is not that.

Terror for his wife and a phobia of hospitals, pushes her pilot husband Tom to the brink, and drink. Will his fear destroy their family, or create a catalyst for change?

With their marriage unravelling just when they need each other most, can they confront their ghosts?
Can life after cancer really be better than life before?
