Oct. 28, 2012 - PRLog -- Bristol, UK. November, 2012 ---- Author Chris Geiger announces the Foyles book launch event, for the release of his new book ‘The Cancer Survivors Club’ on Wednesday November 14th at 6:30pm. The Cancer Survivors Club book is an invaluable read for cancer sufferers, their families and friends.

The event will take place at Foyles bookstore, 6 Quakers Friars, Cabot Circus, Bristol, BS1 3BU. Tickets are available directly from Foyles in Bristol. To reserve a seat visit their store or call them on 0117 376 3975 (http://www.foyles.co.uk/Public/Stores/Detail.aspx?storeid=1015). Tickets may also be reserved by emailing BristolEvents@Foyles.co.uk. Tickets are limited and available on a first-come first-served basis only. Copies of The Cancer Survivors Club book will be available to purchase directly from the store prior to the event.

The Cancer Survivor Club book is a collection of truly inspirational, uplifting and assuring survival stories.  These stories were submitted from readers of Chris Geiger’s regular newspaper columns and in response to the worldwide publication of his ‘Guinness World Record’ newspaper article; together with his radio tour.

Bel Mooney the Daily Mail Columnist said “I have no doubt this book will be very useful indeed. When a diagnosis is made many people are afflicted by fear and negativity - which is why stories that give hope are helpful to patient and family alike. Chris Geiger will prove an inspiration.”

The main focus of The Cancer Survivors Club is to help, encourage and inspire people touched by cancer. In addition it provides current sufferers with a distraction from the worries of daily treatment, by encouraging them to think about life once they’ve become a survivor and kicked the disease. One of the ways is for patients to start writing their story while still receiving treatment, detailing their experiences. Ultimately Chris Geiger wants patients to make it their goal to become a member of The Cancer Survivors Club and have their story published.

Bob Champion MBE the Grand National Winner & Cancer Survivor said “I feel this is a very inspirational book to read and shows that with courage, determination and a positive attitude cancer can be beaten.”

Unfortunately cancer affects everyone; worldwide there are around 12.7 million new cases diagnosed each year. Every two minutes someone in the UK is diagnosed with cancer.

The Cancer Survivors Club has an excellent mix of stories, from the most common cancer, to the rarest.  Some of the cancer types mentioned are; Brain, Bowel, Breast, Pancreatic, Testicular, Leukaemia, Nasal, and Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma.  Also included in the book are a number of Chris Geiger’s cheerful columns, which include a humorous account of a prostate examination and the dangers of getting sunburnt on a crowded beach.
