Vicky Phelan

Vicky Phelan has announced that she has written a book about her life.

The inspirational speaker, who was sadly diagnosed with cervical cancer as one of the over 200 women in Ireland who were given false negatives from Cervical Checks, has written about her life experiences in the book called Overcoming.

Announcing the news on social media today, the mother of two received huge praise for penning the memoir.

“Thrilled for you and well done you, I don’t read many books but this will be one I’ll definitely read,” one follower commented, while another added “The first of many books Vicky.”

The book, which is available now to preorder, will be officially released in September.

“When Vicky Phelan delivered an emotionally charged statement from the steps of the Four Courts in April 2018 – having refused to sign a non-disclosure agreement in the settlement of her action against the HSE – she unearthed the medical and political scandal of our time,” the synopsis reads.

“Since then, Vicky has become women’s voice for justice on the issue, and her system-changing activism has made her a household name.

“An inspiring story of rare resilience and power, Overcoming is an account of how one woman can move mountains – even when she is fighting for her own life – and of finding happiness and strength in the toughest of times.”

We’re looking forward to reading what is sure to be an inspiring memoir!
