Publisher's Summary

This is the story of 25-year-old Rochelle as she nurses her mum through a terminal brain tumour having already lost her dad to pancreatic cancer, aged 14. Based on the author's popular blog, this accessible guide provides a unique in-depth look at the reality of being a young carer. 

After her mum's initial misdiagnosis of a stroke, Rochelle decides to give up her party-girl lifestyle in Leeds, along with her job in marketing and lovely flat she shared with her boyfriend, and move 200 miles home to the not-so-buzzing metropolis of Ipswich. We follow the timeline of the illness, including finding out her mum's cancer was terminal, becoming a full-time carer, splitting up with her boyfriend, being by her mum's side as she passed away, planning her funeral and finding her way again after her mum's death. 

Prepare for a tear-jerking journey as Rochelle navigates the changing family dynamics with her two young sisters, the financial and emotional pressure of being a full-time carer and the challenges of rebuilding your life after the loss of a loved one. But it's not all doom and gloom. This heart-warming account is bursting with practical tips and advice to ease the pressure when someone you love is ill, as well as laugh-out-loud moments.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.
