An Ipswich cancer survivor has revealed plans to write a self-help about how to stay strong in the face of adversity.
Anthony James, of Rope Walk, was left disabled after undergoing surgery to remove a cancerous tumour from his right arm when he was in his 20s.
Now 74, Mr James wants to put his story about how he went on to live a happy and fulfilling life with a physical impairment on paper to inspire others.
Mr James said he had lost friends to suicide and wanted to share his tips for staying mentally well.
He said: “I never give up, that’s how I have lived my life. If I get a problem I think how to cope with it.”
Mr James, who still drives and lives independently, said he had been encouraged by health professionals who had treated him to write a book.
He is searching for a publisher to help him realise his dream.
