At just 36 she discovered she had a rare form of breast cancer. Eight courses of chemotherapy later, a double mastectomy and reconstructive surgery and Sarah-Jane is all clear.

50% of the proceeds of the book will go back to the NHS team at the Lister Hospital in Stevenage which is where Sarah-Jane underwent her treatment.
