Sarah Horton’s honest and forthright opinions on breast cancer have attracted considerable press interest.
Being Sarah – the book – was Highly Commended by the 2011 British Medical Association (BMA) Medical Book Awards. They say:
“Engagingly written in a personal but not sentimental style. Sufficient detail to make it useful to a patient; but the personal details about the impact of breast cancer on the lives of the patient and their family makes it valuable to a medical readership too.
A well-written and intelligent account of a woman’s experiences of breast cancer. The reader will learn from the many aspects of Sarah’s journey.”
