Clinical trials in Chicago for Children with Sarcoma

Children get cancer and it sucks. Here is a quick video from the University of Chicago explaining the need for more money for research for cancer in children.

New Ideas, New Prayers, New Book Cover, New Focus.......

Many of you know that I am a Neonatal Intensive Care Nurse as well as a writer. The focus here has been on children with a serious illness but in 2012 I will be expanding the focus to include pregnancy/fetal growth and development information as well as more up to date information on childhood illness.

I will be having give aways for books like What to Expect When You're Expecting and other children's books on death, illness, first aid, wellness, and literacy. I am pumping up my writing career and expanding my goals so that I can use my expertise as both a nurse and a writer to make a difference.

Keep checking back for the give aways and product reviews. Soon there will be a free e-book for signing up for my email list. I am working on that as another way I can help parents who are dealing with kids who may be sick. Whether the illness is acute or chronic, parents ultimately have questions or ideas. I hope to be able to encourage and support parents and children in many aspects of sickness and in health.

New Ideas, New Prayers, New Book Cover, New Focus.......

The holidays bring happiness but they can be bittersweet for those parents dealing with a child who has cancer. My picture book will be out in the spring and I hope it helps both children with cancer as well as their peers to understand the disease and the daily battle these children face.
While my new book shows a positive outlook for children with cancer, keep in mind that many children and their families are not having such a positive experience. This experience and battle seems more devastating during the holiday season. I have an ongoing prayer list for children I follow on my Caringbridge sites who are very sick this season. Some of these children will win their battle, some maybe not. All of these children need prayer. Please consider praying for  Haley, Noah, Ben, Emily, and Kate sometime during your holiday celebration. And look for many new things here in 2012 to celebrate children with cancer. These are very special children who show bravery, honesty, and unconditional love as they fight their own battles against cancer. May God bless them all.
