My book, #Kaylee Finds Hope, is finished and the prototype bear, Caleb The Cancer-Fighting therapeutic #teddy bear, is as well. The book’s summary is as follows:
Feisty thirteen-year-old, Kaylee Gallagher, learns to cope with cancer as she struggles through adolescence. During this emotional and physical battle, she finds hope. Where does it come from? Her Jamaican BFF, the star quarterback, her medical team, Caleb the Cancer-Fighting Bear™, chemotherapy, her family, or a mixture? Readers will gain insight into how to successfully deal with cancer, adolescence, and cultural differences.
Every hour approximately 10 children die from cancer somewhere in the world. My prayer is that this book and the therapeutic bear will bring comfort, encouragement, healing, and hope to individuals with cancer.
Here’s what Audrey Compton MD, MPH at MD Partners, had to say: “Kaylee Finds Hope, is very sound, and is medically accurate. This story reminds me of a patient that I treated who had a terminal diagnosis and a 65% chance of responding with chemotherapy. However, her faith-filled community helped to prolong her life. This book is a much-needed tool that helps provide hope and inspiration, through biblical affirmation, application, faith, and prayer. I see this book as an excellent aid for all patients with any chronic disease. I endorse and highly recommend this book without reservation.”
In the coming weeks, I will be launching a crowdfunding campaign to bring both the book and the bear into the market place. Also, if you have an interest in visiting pediatric wards, to listen and pray for children, please inbox me.
Update: The bears are now available at Etsy: Hope Teddy Bears.
