Days Like These: The upside and backside of cancer

There’s nothing quite like a cancer diagnosis during a global pandemic to make you realise what matters.

Seven years after emerging from a deep depression, Sue Tredget faces another health crisis. Only this time it’s different. When she was depressed, she didn’t want to be alive. When she finds out she has cancer, life seems like the most beautiful gift.

Armed with her sparkling sense of humour and fighting spirit, Sue decides to write her way through this very personal battle. She has no idea how her story will end but is determined that cancer will not define her, nor steal her joy.

As she embarks on a gruelling treatment regime, while grappling with lockdowns and the pain of separation from loved ones, Sue resolves to nourish her spirit and take one day at a time. She draws strength from the love of friends and family, adopts the mantra just keep walking and immerses herself in the coastal landscapes of Western Australia, marvelling at the healing power of nature.

Sue’s ability to see humour in the most challenging circumstances and find wonder when she least expects it is an inspiration to us all. With its beguiling interplay between darkness and light, laughter and tears, and everything in between, Days Like These is a joyous celebration of life and an uplifting testament to the power of the human spirit.

This candid and compelling memoir offers hope and solace to anyone going through tough times, and reminds us to cherish every moment.
