In Chemo Summer Jane Hoggar takes the reader through a light-hearted and informative account of her discovery of breast cancer and its cure. Cancer of any description has the capacity to chill those it affects and their loved ones. But for Jane Hoggar early discovery and diagnosis provided for a satisfactory resolution. And it's these small details that might well help people in a similar situation. For example, Jane did not discover a lump, which is the usual thing in breast cancer, but a ‘sag' when she raised her arms and it was her insistence that something was wrong that resulted in a vital early medical diagnosis. All the side issues are covered in the book, effects of chemo and radiotherapy, hair loss and wigs, changes in diet and exercise, making Chemo Summer a valuable and engaging look into a serious and often frightening subject.
Jane Hoggar grew up in Suffolk. On finishing school she danced and sang her way around the world for six years before settling in Hertfordshire. Her career has covered many areas including: Glamorous Showgirl Extraordinaire (that was the abroad bit); Singer, Dance and Drama teacher; Magician's, Kitchen, Shop and, Classroom Assistant, Dinner Lady, Receptionist, Bed and Breakfast Landlady, Mum (She was being a Mum throughout all these jobs, except the first one of course).
