About the Book

$1 of each book sold will be donated to the Leukaemia Foundation

For Karina Carrel, the devastation of being diagnosed with Hodgkin’s lymphoma was a crushing blow. The intense love for her family gave her the strength to face the journey itself, while dealing with the possibility of losing her battle.

It has taken Karina two years to finally get her story on paper, with two primary messages in her vision: to raise lymphoma awareness while also helping anyone reading her story who has been affected by cancer. Reliving her experiences has been a secondary journey in itself. This is her story of how she broke through the chains of cancer, through the highs and the lows, for her very own piece of salvation -- Liberation.

Every tear that has been written into this book has been worth it.
