The Fight of My Life : In 2006 Barbara Clark made headlines as the nurse and mother who was diagnosed with breast cancer and fought for the right to be prescribed the wonder drug Herceptin on the NHS, for herself and, equally importantly, for thousands of other women. This book tells the story behind those headlines. It tells how she first found her cancer, how it affected her life and that of her children, and what gave her the will to battle, not just the disease but the authorities, for the chance of more time with the people she loves. Barbara has two boys of her own, one of whom has a serious life-limiting condition himself. These children, and the one that she fosters and offers respite care to, are her greatest reasons for living. The Fight of My Life is the story of an extraordinary woman and of great human courage in the face of despair.
