March 2019 is Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month and the new book “From Cancer to Coddiwomple” is Wendy’s tale of how she coped after the loss of both her parents, within weeks of each other – her mum to Ovarian Cancer

The book will support St Barnabus House, Worthing, a place very close to Wendy’s heart.
