Smiling in the Darkness is the story of the persevering spirit of a woman in her courageous struggle against cancer. Isobel Bradley's journey is one that will inspire us all to appreciate and embrace the greatest gift of all, the gift of life.
Isobel was first diagnosed with the life threatening disease when she was 28 years old; over a decade later her past traumas have returned to haunt her. In this powerful story, Isobel's determination shines through as she succeeds in living her life to the full. Marked by near death experiences, we read about her journey, ranging from skiing and white water rafting incidents through to major life saving surgery.
Unable to have children herself, Isobel supports a Cambodian orphanage and regularly visits the children there. She explains how she found the strength to keep her latest cancer diagnosis a secret from her family for three months as she travelled around the other side of the world.
Isobel's story is a true ray of sunshine in a world where so many are struggling in the darkness.
