Beano writer Tommy Donbavand recounts his battle with cancer in a new book

Cover by Nigel Parkinson.
Author Tommy Donbavand, whose credits include Doctor Who, The Beano, and Scream Street, is publishing an e-book recounting his battle with throat cancer. Here's Tommy in his own words...

"In July 2016, I was coming to the end of a month long stay in hospital, including a terrifying week in intensive care. In July 2017, I will be launching a book which tells the story of my battle against stage four throat cancer, how I dealt with the painful side effects of my chemo and radiotherapy, and why falling out of bed literally saved my life.

Taken from my blog of the same name, Tommy v Cancer is a roller coaster ride of emotion from start to finish. You'll laugh in one chapter, cry in another, and frequently wonder what on earth I'm blathering on about in the rest! Plus, there is a TON of NEW CONTENT! Learn why I sent my brother complete gibberish by text, how I was released from hospital and cracked a rib WITHIN 20 MINUTES of being home, and why my GP resigned from her surgery because of me (really!)

Tommy v Cancer is available to pre-order NOW, and here's the great news - if you buy the book now, you'll get a whopping 25% off the launch day price! 

Once you've pre-ordered, you can forget all about it, as the book will automatically be delivered to your Kindle reader or app on 13th July (or earlier, if I can manage it!) Plus, the more people who pre-order, the higher the book will sit in the rankings, which means more people will see it, and so on!"

For UK readers: - £2.99

For readers in the US: - $2.99
