Matthew Rees - Reasons 2 Smile

ISBN: 9781784615932

Authors: Matthew Rees, Craig Muncey    Publisher: Y Lolfa

The autobiography of Scarlets, Cardiff Blues, Wales, Lions and Barbarians player Matthew Rees, a key member of the Wales team which achieved a Grand Slam at the 2008 Six Nations Championship and the most-capped hooker of all time for the Welsh national side. However, top-fl ight rugby is not all there is to Matthew’s story. He found out who his real father was at age 21, and talks frankly about how he dealt with this bombshell and the impact it had on his relationship with his family. Then at 32, at the peak of his rugby career, he was diagnosed with testicular cancer. Here he reveals what he went through and how the diagnosis and treatment aff ected him. This is not just another rugby biography. Matthew Rees’ cancer diagnosis hit the headlines, and his battle with and eventual full recovery from the disease means that his story has an awful lot more human interest than the tale of your average rugby player. His is an uplifting, inspirational story which even non-rugby fans will enjoy reading, and which could be of real support for those facing similar circumstances.
