December 1979, Annie was three months pregnant with her second child and in excruciating pain. She couldn't walk, couldn't stand, couldn't sleep. In just a year, Annie had gone from being an active young woman to almost entirely incapacitated. Going from one doctor to another, after 18 months, Annie finally had a diagnosis - it was a malignant Ewing's tumour the size of a tennis ball on her knee. Cancer. Almost in the same breath, Annie was told she would have to have her leg amputated above the knee and then told the baby wouldn't survive the surgery…they both defied the odds. She was 26 years old and 26 weeks pregnant. Annie has demonstrated amazing courage sharing her story and overcoming adversity, further setbacks and living life to the full, encouraging the reader to believe there is light at the end of the tunnel, even when you can't see it.
Annie Pateman was born in Paris, France in 1953 and now lives in Melbourne, Australia. Her story of overcoming adversity and surviving cancer three times, is inspiring, encouraging and courageous. Her message is to give hope to anyone who faces any setbacks in life and to encourage them to look for the light at the end of the tunnel as she has done. Annie continues to live a full life with her husband David, two children - Luke and Jessica, two grandsons, Isaac and Asher, son-in-law Sean and Millie, her lively Tenterfield Terrier.
