The Luxury of Time

by Jane and Mike Tomlinson
£6.99   paperback  Simon and Schuster (2005)

The Luxury of Time by Jane and Mike Tomlinson Jane Tomlinson, a happy mother of three, was twenty-six when she was diagnosed with breast cancer. In 2000 she learned that the disease had spread to her lungs and bones. She was given just six months to live.
 
But Jane decided not to wait for death; she decided to fight. Battling fierce, debilitating pain, she took on a series of extreme challenges, pushing her body and her spirit to the very limit, testing the expectations of what a dying woman means. Three London marathons, one 2,500-mile bike ride and a Full Ironman Triathon later she has raised over one million pounds for charity and become a national hero.
 
This is her story - but not only hers, that of Mike, her husband, too. Told in their own words, it is a story of searing honesty and surprising humour; a story of a family, a marriage and two ordinary people finding the extraordinary within them.
