Description

*All to Live For is an extended and updated edition of the bestselling memoir Talk to the Headscarf *

In 2005 Emma Hannigan was thirty two years old, happily married to her long-time love with two young children. Her world was shattered when she discovered that she had the rare gene BRCA1, meaning a 50% chance of developing ovarian cancer and an 85% chance of developing breast cancer. To reduce the risk, Emma had a double mastectomy and both ovaries removed. But in 2007 she received the devastating news that cancer had struck anyway.

Now, twelve years later, Emma Hannigan is battling cancer for the tenth time.

With her trademark warmth and wisdom, Emma shares her journey and her advice on everything from skincare and hair loss to how to keep a sense of humour through it all.

All to Live For is a story of one woman's determination not to let cancer win; a story of strength and inspiration, hope and love. And of never giving up.

Review quote

Imagine you're thirty-two, married with two little children, and you find out you're carrying a deadly cancer gene?

That was Emma Hannigan in August 2005, when she discovered she had the BRAC1 gene, which meant a 50% chance of developing ovarian cancer and an 85% chance of developing breast cancer. Emma had two options - wait for the big bad cancer wolf or have radical surgery. She chose the latter and had a double mastectomy and both ovaries removed, which reduced her cancer risk to 5%.

Just as she was dressing in her victory dance outfit, her worst fears were realised. Cancer struck anyway.

Now, twelve years later, Emma is battling cancer for the tenth time. This is her incredible, inspirational story.

All To Live For is an updated edition of Emma Hannigan's bestselling memoir Talk to the Headscarf
