The Little Things: A Breast Cancer Memoir


It’s ‘the little things’ that matter.

No one knows that more than Lindsey Kennedy. After being diagnosed with breast cancer, she couldn’t find the book she needed to read, so she wrote one.

This is Lindsey’s ultimately uplifting story filled with humour when faced with unthinkable health crises. When many would have found only storm clouds, she found silver linings. Along the way, she was supported by the love of family, friends and strangers.

Lindsey’s determination to help others led to her being one of the faces of a national breast cancer awareness campaign, and The Little Things offers insight for anyone facing the dreaded diagnosis. It’s practical, comforting and empowering.

About the Author

Lindsey Kennedy lives in Victoria, Australia with her husband and two children. She is a public speaker, a BreastScreen Victoria ambassador, civil celebrant, teacher and a breast cancer survivor.
