Understanding Neutropaenia

NEW PUBLICATION Small Black iBooks logo

Available on iTunes for £2.49

Inspired by my own frustrations understanding the complexity of cancer treatment when I had cancer over thirty years ago, this illustrated booklet is designed to help children and their parents understand the management of chemotherapy induced neutropaenia.

Whilst my booklet is by no means exhaustive on the subject of neutropaenia and its management, I hope it will aid healthcare professionals and parents to explain the causes and importance of careful management of this serious side-effect of myelosuppressive treatments. In addition, I hope downloading and colouring in the black and white version might provide a welcome distraction during what is a particularly challenging time for children and their families.

You can purchase the booklet here via PayPal for £2.49 with thirty percent of profits going to UK children’s cancer charities.
