No Full Stops – A memoir was launched in April 2021 about Louises’s rollercoaster year with Breast Cancer, the highs, the lows and the lessons she learned along the way. She hoped that by sharing her story those going through similar challenges might not feel so isolated and that it would provide an insight for family, friends and carers on what to expect. It was also a chance to thank the individuals and the organisations for their support and a love letter to her children who had inspired her to keep going. It proved to be a much more transformational experience and inspired her on her own journey of self-discovery, transformation and healing and the desire to support others on theirs.
In October 2021 Louise released the Ebook of No Full Stops as a fundraiser for Breast Cancer Awareness Month and it became an Amazon #1 Best Seller across 27 categories. Louise now donates 10% of profits from book sales to the amazing organisations in Australia that supported her journey so that they may continue to provide research and support services for others.
NO FULL STOPS STORIES
No full stops was originally a personal blog set up in March 2016 to share Louise’s journey of recovery after cancer treatment. After a few stops and starts the blog took a back seat as she focused on writing her memoir. However, in 2023 she intends to release No Full Stops Stories as a platform for others to share their No Full Stop journey to help others connect. heal and grow.

‘Louise captured the essence of her experience of living with a life-threatening illness and how it affected her and her family. I loved the way she interspersed her journey with humour because as many of us know, it really does pay to be able to laugh.”
‘No Full Stops is a refreshing reflection on living with cancer through the emotional, humorous and very real accounts of one woman’s experience. Louise has gifted readers with the ability to sit in the skin of a cancer patient and understand a little of what the experience and pain may be like, but her quirky and magnetic personality ensures a light, enjoyable and funny read.’
‘Sharing commonly unspoken insights, No Full Stops chronicles a year defined by cancer diagnosis and treatment, interspersed with more light-hearted anecdotes, resulting in an informative, candid and relatable story about life, cancer, family, and the depths of human resilience. It also captures insightfully the post-cancer journey, where a different kind of personal struggle emerges. The reader can’t help but reflect on how they might integrate similar experiences and make meaning from a “second chance” at life.
I’d commend No Full Stops as a comforting companion for those facing their own diagnosis, treatment and recovery journey and equally helpful to friends and families trying to understand their loved one’s perspective. A valuable read if you’re reflecting on the impact of cancer or any other life-altering event.’
