Summary
How do you write a goodbye letter to your friends and family when you may - or may not - be about to die? On the one hand I don't want to depart this mortal coil without leaving some sort of a message to those I love, and on the other hand I don't want to be melodramatic, confess all my sins and give away any more possessions, in case I make it through okay. I reckon I'd have a hard time getting my bicycle back from Greg. Just days before Christmas, Bambi Smyth is diagnosed with a brain tumour, throwing her life completely off kilter and seriously upsetting her plans for an adventurous second-half-of-life. Bad Hair Year tells the tale of how she copes - her stoicism, positivity and, above all, her enduring sense of humour. Which she will need again in spades because just as she's getting back on her feet she discovers she has breast cancer. This is for anyone who wonders how it feels to have your very existence suddenly under threat, or wants some reassurance from a friend who has been there, and lived to tell the tale
