Gut Feelings: Coping With Cancer and Living With Lynch Syndrome Out Now!

My memoir Gut Feelings: Coping With Cancer and Living With Lynch Syndrome is out now on Amazon!

Gut Feelings: Coping With Cancer and Living With Lynch Syndrome by Sam Rose

“Lynch syndrome is a genetic condition that makes it more likely for a person to get cancer. In other words, it’s the world’s worst loyalty programme.”

Colon cancer, uterine cancer, duodenal cancer. Colostomy bags, infertility, genetic testing. But also, joy. Also adventure. Also grit.

GUT FEELINGS spans ten years from the author’s first diagnosis to the life-changing surgeries for her second and third. Racking up a collection of medical experiences – and losing countless organs along the way – Sam Rose has stories for anyone facing the uncertainty of cancer or Lynch syndrome, to help patients and survivors feel less alone.

Gut Feelings in the Media

An extract from my memoir is available on the Bowel Cancer UK website.

I appeared on The Hope-Makers Podcast chatting to Erica Bowen about my book and my experiences.

I wrote an article about the writing of my memoir for Lucy Turns Pages.

Part of my story appears on the Womb Cancer Support UK blog.

In March, I’ll be on an episode of Radical Care Podcast.

Gut Feelings is out now in paperback and on Kindle at Amazon!

Guest Appearance on WhyMe with Vera-Lee Podcast!

Earlier this year I was invited to be on the WhyMe with Vera-Lee podcast, and the episode has just been released!

During the episode, we talk about my three cancer diagnoses, Lynch syndrome, my PhD research and my writing. Vera-Lee and I had such a great connection, and I loved our conversation. Give it a listen and let me know what you think! I’m happy to talk about any issues brought up in this episode.

Publication Notice: Bonnie’s Crew

I have two pieces out in the April issue of Bonnie’s crew! The first (page 30) is a creative non-fiction piece called The News, which I have been trying to place for possibly a couple of years now. It’s about trying to fit the anxiety of going for scans in with everyday life, and how easily that anxiety can be triggered.

The poem is called Grammar Error (page 37) and it’s a real short one, written after my hsyterectomy.

You can read them both here:

Hope you like them!
