Brave or foolhardy?
That is the question Dawne asks herself when she stubbornly pursues her goal
of trekking in the Sahara Desert to raise funds for Thrombosis UK.
As she battles excruciating back pain and slogs across the unforgiving desert
landscape in boots held together with gaffer tape, will her determination to
educate others to the perils of thrombosis drive her to achieve one of the
toughest challenges of her life. Or will trekking in the Sahara prove a step too
All profits from book sales will be donated to the charity Thrombosis UK which
works to educate the public and health professionals to ‘Spot the Clots’.
Knowing what to look out for might save your life or that of someone close to you.
Thank you to author Dawne Archer for a copy of her memoir Trekker Girl – Morroco Bound which I won. Here are my thoughts:
This is an inspiring memoir based on the author’s experiences with thrombosis, (and with reference to her father’s,) and her life long commitment to fundraising for Thrombosis UK.
Commendable, heart-warming and full of camaraderie and human spirit. Dawne’s memoir takes us along with her on her brave trek with fellow trekkers, including her mate Sarah. There are many health obstacles to overcome, added issues such as backache and stomach problems, and mirages!
Read this wonderful memoir to find out more about Dawne’s and fellow trekkers determination, and to understand the implications of thrombosis and meet her fellow trekkers.
The memoir also includes some lovely photos.
