In 1985, Andrea learn that she has cancer. After five years confronting the psychological and physical effects of chemotherapy, she decides to turn her back on the medical system. From a "little experience", she makes a "big story", because she tells it as it is.
To begin with, she writes two letters: one to the nurses who had been looking after her, the other to her friend Bella. What follows is the making of her own end, an assertion of living against a society which produces illness and isolation. Together with her friends she fixe up the day for the final parting.
Written with passion, this book is a must for patients and health workers alike who have come to question a system where the treatment can be worse than the disease. In describing the almost complete domination of the French Health services by economic imperatives it concludes that it is better to die on your own terms than to live on theirs.
