‘Laishley writes it all in an easy, upbeat journal style, not pulling any punches.'

The Senior
‘It takes a witty and talented writer to be amusing about breast cancer - and Claire Laishley is both witty and talented.’

Adelaide Now
'Claire Laishley is an unsung hero of our community. Her earlier book "My Mother is my Daughter" similarly helped so many families deal with Alzheimer's disease. It is a tribute to Claire's generosity of spirit that she is able to take life's troughs and turn them into inspirational, and insightful experiences for others to share.'
