This book is truly a special gift. Harper Collins sent me a copy to check out – and while of course I’d never hope to need a book about cancer to share with my children, this is one that is beautifully done and I’d highly recommend it.
Written by Julie Aigner Clark, it talks in simple words about having cancer, and about how her child’s love is the best medicine and is accented by beautiful illustrations.
From the author’s website:
Julie is a two-time breast cancer survivor, and recently authored a children’s book that helps mother’s explain cancer treatment to their children in an optimistic and loving way. The book, called “The Best Medicine,” will be published by Harper Collins in Fall 2010. As a breast cancer survivor, Julie also is a proud supporter of the Pink Ribbon Foundation (www.thepinkribbon.org), an all-volunteer, non-profit organization that provide funds to cancer patients.
I would like to give my copy to someone who is in need of it – if you or someone dear to you could use this please email me mflaum @ comcast . net – I will remove this offer from this post once my copy has found a good home…
