We know coping with cancer can be difficult for any age, so we developed Someone I Love is Sick to provide educational information and address emotional responses, and can be used by families and health care professionals exclusively for kids.
Below are a few testimonials about our book.
Lance Armstrong – Seven-time winner of the Tour de France, Founder and Chairman of the Lance Armstrong Foundation, and cancer survivor
“Now that I am a dad, I can really understand how difficult it would be as a parent trying to help young children understand cancer. This book offers a unique method of helping parents help their own children. It is truly empowering.”
Rachel Naomi Remen, MD – Author of Kitchen Table Wisdom and My Grandfather’s Blessings
“Words sometimes fail us. This little book enables our heart to speak comfort directly to those who have no words, the smallest of our children. Someone I Love is Sick is a blessing for parents and grandparents in difficult times.”

“Someone I Love is Sick allows parents to quickly create their own highly effective Life Book to help their children deal with the challenging issue of cancer in their family. I believe very strongly that this book will be a unique and valuable resource for families to help children understand what cancer means and to make sense of what they feel.”
Geraldo Rivera – Geraldo At Large, Fox News
“Remembering the challenge of explaining to our children that their grandfather had cancer, with all of its life changing realities, I applaud this wonderful book. It is a warm, supportive, easily understood way to put in perspective what is and what will be, without scaring the child who needs reassurance. It’s wonderful.”
