Time To Take Back My Life is a personal account by Michelle Peacock, a beautiful young teenager who describes her inspirational journey to overcome a rare form of cervical cancer. From diagnosis at eleven years old, the book documents Michelle’s six-year ordeal of endless treatments and operations, until her untimely death just three days after her seventeenth birthday, on 27 February 2013.
Michelle tells her story in a fresh and direct style, giving account of the highs and lows of living with cancer, her reasons for remaining positive and her many coping strategies.
In recognition of her strength, courage and fortitude, Michelle was awarded a “Spirit of the Community Award” by Pramerica Ireland. This award scheme seeks to recognise and encourage young people to be active citizens in their local community.
The book portrays Michelle’s remarkable determination to maintain and carry herself with the utmost dignity; always ready to face the world with a smile, until the end, revealing her true passion for life, to Live-Laugh-Love.
