About the book:
If It Were Just Cancer: A Battle for Dignity and Life is an honest and real account of how cancer patients suffer in the Ireland of
today, an Ireland awash with money but without a heart.

It is the storyt of Janette Byrne's time spent battling not just cancer but also the dirt and the filth of an Irish hospital; not just the disease and the treatment but also the failing Health System, which denied her a bed and made it impossible for her to receive chemotherapy. Some days fighting
cancer seemed the easier battle.

Written in the style of a journal, If It Were Only Cancer: A Battle for Dignity and Life sometimes screams in anger and other times relents in hopelessness. Throughout this story many patients die, and how some of
these brave people spend their final months should be an embarrassment to
our nation.

About the author:
Janette writes not for financial gain, not for recognition, but so no one
can ever say, 'We didn't know. We didn't realise how bad it is!' She tells
her story hoping to inspire a vocal revolution, a roar of people power. We
must all take responsibility for what continues to happen in our hospitals,
time and time again.
