A year-long regimen of chemotherapy and radiotherapy wasn't quite what Luke Ryan had in mind when he turned twenty-two. Especially having been through the same rigamarole when he was eleven. Needless to say, Luke is eyeing off thirty-three warily. Clearly there's only one course of action to take when you've been handed two life-threatening diagnoses in twenty-two years: comedy. A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to Chemo is a warm-hearted and hilarious memoir from someone who has laughed in the face of more adversity than most of us will encounter in a lifetime.
