In a cruel twist of fate in November 2006 Chris O'Brien, one of the country's leading head and neck cancer surgeons, was diagnosed with glioblastoma multiforme, and aggressive and almost inevitably lethal form of brain cancer. With the support of his close family, O'Brien took the option of radical brain surgery under the supervision of a well-known neurosurgeon, Dr Charlie Teo. His health and relative youth -- he was 54 when diagnosed -- have helped him make the painful transition from doctor to patient and, renewed his faith in the importance of an optimistic outlook as the cornerstone of recovery. -- Rear panel blurb Size: Trade Paperback.
