Here is a story you have to read. This young high school student named Stephen Beirne has been diagnosed with a malignant tumor at the base of his skull and into his spinal cord called a Chordoma. He is going through chemotherapy treatments and surgical treatments and guess what he has done during this treatment.......
He has written a book. He doesn't feel sorry for himself, he writes. And he donates the proceeds to Make-A-Wish- Foundation.
Now, I say that is fantastic. What a role model for other teens. His book is a fantasy where the main character, Eamon, risks his life and the lives of his friends in search of a treasure.
This book sounds pretty exciting to me. You can get your own copy by calling The Learned Owl bookstore at 1-800-968-2685 to give your credit card information.
You may also email the bookstore if you have questions at firstname.lastname@example.org
Get your copy soon and let me know what you think. Remember the proceeds from the book go to Make-A-Wish-Foundation and that is a great cause.
