An Unpredictable Life, by Elaine White
A memoir of a teen's struggle with cancer
AN UNPREDICTABLE LIFE is a memoir of Elaine White's struggle with cancer as a teen. This book was a 2014 Watty Award winner on WattPad!
I was diagnosed with Cancer a week before my 16th Birthday. I had Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma and had to undergo Chemotherapy and a Stem Cell transplant, back in 2003. My whole life changed. I wrote this book when I was 17, when all my treatment was over, to catalogue everything I had learned and experienced. I had no information about Cancer during my treatment; it was all aimed at adults and I was a teenager who didn't understand most of what happened.
So I wrote this book. I was a teenager when I wrote, when I had Cancer and I wanted this to be an information, honest account of what it was really like to have Cancer and go through the treatment....from a teenager's perspective.
