A stirring true story of triumph and recovery from breast cancer

Mammograms Save Lives
By Avril Dalziel Saunders

Avril was diagnosed with breast cancer in March 2011. After a mammogram she was called back to receive the devastating news that she had breast cancer. She felt well, had no symptoms, had never smoked, ate a healthy diet and exercised regularly, so how could this be? There was no explanation, it can happen to anyone!

Author Avril Dalziel Saunders says ‘…I want to inspire and encourage these women as well as women all over the world to have regular checks. …my profit from the book sales will go to Breast Cancer Care and Macmillan Nurses. I am shouting this out loud…‘MAMMOGRAMS SAVE LIVES!’…

    Knowing a family member going through this for the 3rd time I'll certainly be buying this book and encouraging others to do likewise. Not just will we get a good read but it will also be a worthy contribution towards fighting this horrible illness.

  2. Such a touching account of the authors true experience. I hope this book helps women who are putting off a mammogram for fear of a few minutes of discomfort realise how important this test is. I also hope it helps those who have been recently diagnosed draw strength from the positive outcome and frankness of the author as it follows the extreme ups and downs of her personal journey. LADIES - BUY THIS BOOK AND HELP PUT AN END TO BREAST CANCER!

  3. Hope the book does well, Avril.

  4. I have a very close friend who went through the trauma of breast cancer and survived, although this book was not around at the time to help her, I am sure it will be an inspiration to others. All of the proceeds are going to charity, so I hope that this book does extremely well.

  5. Well done Avril most people know someone who has suffered with this horrible disease you are a inspiration to all.
    So glad you had the courage to talk about it and write a book
    I wish you and all who are suffering my love and best wishes, well done.


  6. Well Done Avril, I hope that your book does well..I am looking forward to getting my copy. I am sure your experience and honesty will be of great encouragement and solace to a lot of people. Good Luck for the future.Katie.

  7. A subject worth shouting about, Avril. I'm sure your experience of fighting the disease and your personal account of your journey to recovery will give hope to others facing breast cancer. I wish you well and know that the proceeds from your book will be going to a truly worthwhile cause. Debi
