Overview

'Your child has cancer.'

These are four words you hope to never hear; yet over 12,000 families a year will hear this very phrase. The prognosis of cancer can make you stop dead in your tracks, but when doctors tell you that your child has cancer, you want to shout from the top of your lungs, 'Time Out!'

Join David Kelly as he recounts his family's journey as his daughter, Hannah, battles a rare form of childhood cancer. At the time of her prognosis, Hannah was a fun-loving, ten-year-old girl who was looking forward to a summer playing basketball. Instead, she and her family would be at the Mayo Clinic, entering into the unknown medical world of oncology, radiology, and childhood cancer support. With thousands of newly-diagnosed children per year, Time Out not only walks you through experiences shared by many but inspires you with this family's story of faith, strength, and hope.

'A childhood cancer diagnosis can leave you groping through a dense fog of uncertainty and facing many unanswered questions. This inspiring true story is a legacy of encouragement from a family who reminds us that faith, wit, and humor can rise above these challenges of cancer, while making the journey easier for others to follow.'

This true story of Hannah Kelly, a young girl fighting a rare form of childhood cancer is amazing. The author uses a perfect balance of tenderness, humor, inspiration and raw emotion. The story enveloped me from the start. I found myself unable to wait to find out what the next chapter held for Hannah. Any parent of a child who has a serious medical condition can benefit from reading this book. I highly recommend this heartfelt story.
