‘Nipples to Kneecaps’ is the extraordinarily moving memoir of Steve and Mandy Brown who defied Steve’s death sentence of terminal cancer in January of 1986. By making positive changes to their habits and daily lives, Steve is alive to tell his story today through the words of Mandy and her perspective on the events that miraculously cured her husband. The book is a moving celebration of the true meaning of human triumph and courage, the importance of instinct and the imperative of living everyday with joy.
“My dear girl, I have seen many a patient in my time and we cannot help Steve. At best, he has three months to live…” are words that every partner dreads. The crushing pain of shock, despair and the realisation that family life will change drastically from that moment forward are an all too real occurrence of hundreds of families every day: for Mandy it was a call to arms. She could see that there was still a fighting spirit in Steve’s tumour-riddled body, so she hatched a plan that ultimately proved to be the turning point for the couple’s destiny.
Laughing, socialising with only positive friends and family, changing the use of certain words in conversation, and cutting out any negativity in their lives meant that laughter and happiness became the norm. This was just one part of a wild yet simple plan that unfolded over the next two years. Surrounding themselves in positivity, Mandy and Steve created a ‘culture of change’, which they believe ultimately saved Steve.
‘Nipples to Kneecaps’ is the heartwarming true story of a young family’s high and lows following on from a heartbreaking terminal prognosis through to successful remission and their unconventional methods of adapting to day-to-day living with cancer and subsequent recovery through the healing power of positivity.
