In the words of the author:
"My name is Kate Granger and I am a 30 year old ST5 doctor in Elderly and Stroke Medicine. Unfortunately in August last year I was diagnosed with a Desmoplastic Small Round Cell Tumour. Whilst I underwent a course of palliative chemotherapy I wrote a book about my experiences as a patient on 'The Other Side'. The book aims to make doctors stop and think about what it is truly like to be the patient and how our behaviours no matter how small impact on the people we look after within the context of Oncology.
All profits from the sale of the book are being donated to the Yorkshire Cancer Centre based at St James's University Hospital in Leeds where I am being treated. The book can be ordered from my website - www.theothersidestory.co.uk or is available to download on Kindle."
