What People are Saying About This

Brian Lewis
Shannin's book will be a welcome addition to the literature, and I enjoyed every page. She has done a good job of making clear all the important issues for a child with cancer. She is obviously bright and thoughtful and caring."

Dr. Beverly Ramey, Jr., M.D. Anderson Cancer Center, Houston; formerly Chief of Pediatric Oncology and Hematol- ogy, University of Virginia School of Medicine.

"Delightful, moving and poignant (almost too much so) work of an extraordinary person...what comes through, for one who has watched patients, is her incredible aplomb in the face of such an awful and disruptive business. Kids have this freshness and matter of factness that has not been qualified and contaminated by the convoluted world of adults. (Dr. Brian Lewis, oncologist, Kaiser-Permanente, San Francisco, and former clinical professor of medicine, University of California-San Francisco's Cancer Research Institute.)
