Two weeks to live. That was the prognosis. Unless someone, somewhere, acted fast I would be dead in just fourteen days. I was so ill and exhausted that I could barely take it in. I just wanted to sleep. Perhaps I just wanted to die, putting an end to the sheer weariness I’d been experiencing. Life changing as it was, at that point it seemed just another ‘thing’ to contend with. As I sunk my face into the pillow and hoped for oblivion, temporary or otherwise, my only thought was, ‘Well at least I know now.’

If, out of the blue, you were given just two weeks to live, how would you feel? What would you do? How would you prepare for the end? Who would you tell – and how?

This was the terrible position Roland Chesters found himself in in the late summer of 2006. He knew he was seriously ill – but had no idea he had both HIV and AIDS.

Luckily, Roland did not die. Expert medical help and his own determination not to give in saw him through. His life, though, had changed forever…

Ripples From the Edge of Life is Roland’s account of a life-changing diagnosis and its impact on him and those closest to him. More than a memoir, Roland’s story is not unique; ripples spread outwards, and this empowering collection gives voice to fourteen others who have survived similar traumatic diagnoses.

This book contains wisdom, hope, humour and inspiration in equal measure. It is an essential read for anyone living with a life-changing condition, and for those who support them.
