Detailed item info

Description
In November 2006, Chris O'Brien was diagsed with glioblastoma multi-forme, a malignant and extremely aggressive form of cancer. As one of the country's most eminent cancer specialists, O'Brien kws that the chances of beating the brain tumour are tiny; even with chemotherapy, surgery and radiation few sufferers survive past 12 months. Nevertheless, he is determined to beat the odds. With the support of his close family and an international network of surgeons, friends and well-wishers, O'Brien took the option of radical brain surgery under the supervision of his friend Dr Charlie Teo. His level of fitness, optimistic outlook and relative youth (he was 55 when diagsed) give him a shot at survival. Currently he is in remission. Funny, charming and fearless, O'Brien has said he is t afraid to die - but he doesn't plan to just yet. Here, in his inspiring memoir, he takes a look back over his life and the forces which shaped him - from his modest beginnings as part of a typical Australian-Irish family, to his early years as a doctor and football player, to life, living on the smell of an oily rag as a young doctor with a family in London and the US, through to the shocking news which literally changed his life.

"Never Say Di" by  Dr Chris O'Brien.

It was 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, an aggressive and almost inevitably lethal form of brain cancer. As he knew, few sufferers survive past 12 months. Nevertheless, he was determined to beat the odds.

With the support of his close family, O'Brien took the option of radical brain surgery under the supervision of 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.

Here, in his warm and lively memoir, Chris O'Brien takes a look back over his life and the forces that have shaped him – from his modest beginnings and early years as a doctor, to becoming the popular face of RPA and his crusade for the establishment of cancer centres, through to the shocking news that literally changed his life.
