Hello, and welcome to my website

A Hair's Whisper - From Cancer to the Courtroom


The dramatic and captivating true story of corporate greed and the bullying of a cancer patient. 


When Shirley Ledlie, a breast cancer patient survivor, stands up to one of the world's largest pharmaceutical companies and its lawyers, she embarks on a journey of strength and determination, and with an unbreakable sense of duty to do the right thing. 

Despite fearing for her safety and standing at a mental crossroads, not knowing which path to take, Shirley shares her innermost thoughts, even those she’s ashamed of, and her rollercoaster of emotions from despair to elation and self-doubt to confidence. 

A Hair’s Whisper is a gripping and empowering story that shows what can be achieved when we fight for the truth.

I'm passionate about providing support to cancer survivors so I've created The Cancer Hub where you can discover interviews with cancer charities, businesses, and support groups. There's a separate section for cancer memoirs and their authors plus a section for the all-important survivor stories. Please contact me for guest post opportunities or if you are a cancer-related business and would like to be interviewed. I would love to hear from you.

Please hop over to the Newsletter Signup page to find out what you can expect each month! Also on the signup page, you'll find a FREE download. I've put together a dossier of independent studies carried out that investigate permanent hair loss from chemotherapy drug Taxotere, their stats/results, and conclusions. You can 'click & print' this dossier and breast cancer patients can present it to their oncologists, if they're prescribed Taxotere/Docetaxel, to show the evidence that permanent hair loss is NOT rare. Or you can use it as your own reference.  It is not necessary to signup for the newsletter.

I'm a former weekly columnist of the UK Bella magazine. Since leaving Bella I have written media articles, a memoir, three travelogues, and taken part in many podcast interviews.  


 Take a look at my blog page and discover a variety of topics plus you can be inspired by guest author Claire Harbour Lyell's The Power of a Story and don't miss my latest blog

I was honoured to be invited to host a keynote discussion for the world's first scalp cooling summit. It is available to the medical world but the first seven mins can be found here
