Leigh Bernhardt, a human resources, industrial relations, mediation and commercial arbitration consultant, was 55 in 2008 when he was diagnosed with stage 4 non-Hodgkin lymphoma. The diagnosis came as a shock to Leigh, who was a fit and healthy non-smoker and non-drinker, a runner, triathlete, competitive tennis player and tennis coach. That was the start of Leigh's journey during which he has had further cancers, treatments and surgeries.
Leigh’s intention with his book is to help people who are facing cancer or other life-threatening conditions deal with the many decisions they must make in order to achieve the best outcome possible under their circumstances. The tips, examples and advice he provides will be useful and timely for people facing such a stressful and anxious time in their lives.
