SOUVENIRS OF SUFFERING is a candid account that will find the reader cheering Dazhoni on, sometimes with tears, at every obstacle on her way to become the compassionate, energetic young woman she is today.The champions in the story are friends, family members, teachers, hospital staff and camp counselors who patiently and lovingly supported her and other children struggling with debilitating diseases. These children are the real heroes, each and every one.

Having cancer as a child changed Dazhoni’s view of life, something the reader will sense as she portrays each milestone along the way.
