Cancer affects people in different ways. Lisa Febre, in her book Round the Twist: Facing the Abominable, revealed her cancer journey, the pains, traumas, treatments she had, and side effects, and how she was affected by it. In December 2021, Lisa received a diagnosis of malignant neoplasm of the sigmoid colon, which was already in stage 4. She was referred to an oncologist by her physician, Dr. Kagan. An appointment was arranged with Dr. Quilici, who performed colostomy surgery on her, but he didn't remove all the cancer he saw, as that would have made her lose two of her vital organs. Dr. Quilici later suggested chemotherapy to dissolve or shrink the remaining cancer cells in her body. Would you love to know more about Lisa's cancer journey? Then grab a copy of this book to learn more.
I came to understand that some people diagnosed with cancer see it as a death sentence, and they give up even before the cancer battle begins. But it wasn't the same for Lisa, as she was optimistic and didn't see it as the end of her life; instead, she had a different perspective and faced the reality of battling the disease.
What I liked about this book was how Lisa handled the news from her doctors when they told her of her condition; her confidence and positivity were top-notch. Furthermore, I loved how, during each step of her cancer journey, she consulted her friends who were cancer survivors on what to expect next. I liked how her husband, Louis, never gave her any chance of giving up and was always supportive and with her every step of the way. The love and support from her friends, family, and doctors is also what I admire.
Round the Twist: Facing the Abominable by Lisa Febre is free of criticism, and there is nothing I disliked about it, as reading it gave me a reason to appreciate life and be grateful for good health. I discovered zero errors in my reading, which led me to conclude that it was an exceptionally well-edited book. Therefore, I couldn't think of any possible way to reward it with a lesser rating than 5 out of 5 stars.
Those who are on a cancer journey or those with family or friends affected by cancer would love this book, as they would learn to emulate Lisa's positivity.
