Julie and her husband presenting the cheque at the Edward Jenner Unit at Gloucestershire Royal Hospital

Julie Wiltshire’s book describes her experiences of caring for her husband as he has struggled with cancer. From the sales of the book Julie has been able to donate £500 to LINC (The Leukaemia and Intensive Chemotherapy Fund) which will go towards a new chair for the Chemotherapy Room.

A Carer’s Chaos is an important new book by Julie Wiltshire.

It offers a valuable and unique insight into the problems and struggles that carers must face every single day of their lives.

The book tells the story of how Julie Wiltshire coped and managed when her husband David was diagnosed with cancer, not once, but twice.

Julie records the details of their long journey from the diagnoses, the treatments and their daily lives as they battled to survive.

It’s an honest and open account and tells of periods of love and of hate, anger, feelings of loneliness and the utter terror of having to face the fact that your loved one is seriously ill and could even succumb to this disease.

It takes the reader through the terrible trials and tribulations of the carer as they attempt to help and support their ill spouse or family member without breaking under the strain of the situation that is not of the making of themselves or the victim of cancer.

This book is a must have for every doctor’s surgery, every oncology unit, every hospice and every psychological counsellor who has to help carers cope with their unwanted role and every library in the land.

It is published by Matador at £9.99 and is available to purchase here.
