RAGE Recommended Book

Foiled Creative Fire: A study of remarkable women with breast cancer

The origin of this book came about fairly soon after the author's own experience of breast cancer, when she heard similar stories told by others in her support group, of traumatic life events followed by depression, followed by cancer. She began to explore the lives of women in history who experienced breast cancer, and found a similar pattern, from Anne of Austria (1601-1666) to Audre Lorde (1934-1992).

It tells the stories of women through the ages who experienced breast cancer, at times when modern medicine was not available to help: in spite of this, several of the women recovered well and went on to live productive lives. The novelist Fanny Burney was one of these, whose mastectomy was performed by Napoleon's best surgeon; the Bloomsbury artist Vanessa Bell was another. In these two cases their creative fire was not foiled: they both went on to do more admirable work.

The European Cancer Patient Coalition have asked for our support with their survey on COVID-19 and cancer which they launched recently.

With their survey 'Mapping EU Member State's response to the COVID-19 pandemic and cancer' they are gathering information to understand the effect that COVID-19 has had on cancer patients and their treatment across Europe.
