Making Plans with Nigel

Stuart Houghton’s semi-autobiographical story about having breast cancer, set in the period leading up to the 2016 EU referendum.

When 45-year-old writer and IT nerd Stu finds a lump in what he calls his left breast he leaps into action with the most sensible plan he can come up with - he googles for reassurance then ignores it.

Nothing to worry about, he decides. Breast cancer only affects women or really old men, after all.

Except - sometimes it doesn't...
