Book Launch by Cathy McCarthy

1 Sep


One of our amazing supporters Cathy McCarthy has launched a positive self-help book called ‘Not The Year You Had Planned’

Throughout our lives we all face challenges. One of these could be cancer. During her own journey with the illness, Cathy McCarthy discovered that while there was so much useful information available, it was fragmented and often difficult to find. The genesis of this book came about as a result; its goal is to give the reader as much information as possible to help them navigate through their journey with cancer. Or to help a loved one do so.                                                                                                                                                               
An illness like cancer has many aspects – practical, emotional, spiritual. In her book, Cathy McCarthy blends together all of these strands. Not The Year You Had Planned is a positive self-help book for a time in one’s life that was not expected or planned.

With courage and the right attitude, we all have the depth within ourselves to get through such a life-changing event. A cancer diagnosis is a great shock, but unexpected challenges help us to grow. Cathy McCarthy believes that what is initially perceived as an overwhelming journey can somehow unearth strength and courage within us that we never knew we had.

Her hope is that this uplifting but very practical book will play a positive and supportive role during a cancer illness and will be of interest to the person making that journey, as well as family and friends.

This book is available to buy in all book stores nationwide for €12.99 and all proceeds are going to the Tallaght Cancer Support Group and the Sligo Cancer Support Centre.
