When a Kid Like Me Fights Cancer

By Catherine Stier
Illustrated by Angel Chang

The first thing you learn when you have cancer is that it’s something you fight.  And you learn it’s not your fault. Sometimes a good kid has to deal with a bad disease

When a young child finds out he has cancer, he learns a lot right away. He learns that cancer is something you fight, and that cancer isn’t anyone’s fault—especially not his. He discovers that many things change with cancer, but some of the most important things stay the same. He also learns that having cancer is easier when everyone around him wants to help him fight.

“A great way to introduce children to a not-often-depicted career path and maybe to spark some interest in our country’s national treasures as well.” —Kirkus Reviews
