Sally Farmiloe-Neville’s book launch
Cancer-stricken actress Sally Farmiloe-Neville’s book My Left Boob ‚Äì A Cancer Diary was recently launched at Peter Stringfellow’s Angels nightclub. A large crowd of nearly 300 guests gathered to give support to the brave author whose book chronicles her journey through the debilitating treatments she had to endure in her fight against breast cancer.
Peter Stringfellow, whom Sally has known for some decades and who himself had fought cancer in the past, generously provided the premises as well as unlimited flow of champagne accompanied by delicious canapes.
Amongst the guests who’d come to lend their support to the ailing star were her longstanding friends Christine and Neil Hamilton, Ingrid Tarrant, former wife of Who Wants To Be a Millionaire presenter Chris Tarrant, and best-selling thriller writer Peter James.
Sally bravely sat through the evening signing over 100 copies, each with a personal message. She also found the energy to make an inspiring speech without a hint of self pity and to give interviews to members of the press.
My Left Boob ‚Äì A Cancer Diary is part memoire, part practical guide for people who are in the dark about how to cope with such a difficult diagnosis. The author’s tone nonetheless remains light, interjected with humour and self-depracation. Published by independent publishers The Book Guild, it has received 5-star reviews in the national press. Available from The Book Guild or from Amazon, priced at ¬£9.99.
Sally is donating all her royalties to the Royal Marsden Hospital’s Research Fund and to cancer charities Yes to Life and ABC (Against Breast Cancer).
