In the first of a series of videos, writer Cathy McCarthy shares what she has learned since surviving cancer. Cathy was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2007. She has since made a full recovery and left her old admin job behind to pursue a writing career.
She recently released her second book, Stronger Than Yesterday – Living Your Life Beyond Adversity. The book is a self-help guide to help those trying to overcome adversity and the proceeds from the book are going towards Jack Kavanagh, a young windsurfer who was paralysed in a accident in 2012, and the High Hopes homeless choir in Waterford.
The book is available from all good book stores and at www.books.ie priced €11.99
