Comedian David Downs' new book on cancer experience

  • 13/08/2019

Author and comedian David Downs has written a new book about his experience with cancer.

But A Mild Touch of the Cancer isn't your usual life-threatening illness memoir. For a start, it's a hilarious and uplifting story about one of the unfunniest subjects on earth, and spoiler alert: Downs survives.

It's also a story of hope as it details Downs' pioneering genetic modification treatment which saved his life and may go on to save countless others.

Downs joined The AM Show to discuss the book.
