Overview

Champ's Story: Dogs Get Cancer Too! by Sherry North, Kathleen Rietz

Children facing cancer—whether their own, a family member's, a friend's, or even a pet's—will find help in understanding the disease through this book. A young boy discovers his dog's lump, which is then diagnosed with those dreaded words: “It's cancer.” The boy becomes a loving caretaker to his dog, who undergoes the same types of treatments and many of the same reactions as a human under similar circumstances (transference). Medical writer and award-winning children's author, Sherry North artfully weaves the serious subject into an empathetic story that even young children can understand.
