Breast Cancer survivor, Ejiro Ideme bares all in her debut book ‘Scars Of Hope’ where she shares her Breast Cancer story in the hopes that it will be a source of inspiration and faith for other women battling the disease.
Nigerian born London based accountant, Ejiro Ideme was diagnosed with Breast Cancer in October 2012. During a traumatic 14-month battle she felt the Lord tell her to write a book and share her experience – even with the risk of being stigmatised within the Nigerian community, particularly as a single woman.
“If this had never happened to me I would never had written a book.”
Scars of Hope is a selfless yet self-reflecting book that sees a passionate worship minister’s faith tested in the darkest hours as her world is turned upside-down.
A self-published author, Ejiro wrote the book in the midst of her treatment. She says:
“I’m glad to write even from my place of struggle and faith during treatment to encourage you that you can go through Iife strong if you put your mind to it. Dare to be optimistic even in your darkest moments. Make your challenges count by bringing hope to the hopeless.”
Since the release of the book in 2014, Ejiro has been passionate to support women going through Breast Cancer by sharing her story with others, offering advice and speaking out about her story – something she believes is her mandate for this time.
The back of the book gives very practical prayer points that are specific to cancer patients. There is also information on support groups and alternative therapies of which she is keen to encourage Afro-caribbean women to take better advantage of.
