I don’t actually remember how I first met Renee Robinson. I think it all started when some unmitigated ‘Ho wrote a cruel review about her writing, and I jumped to her defense. That sounds about like me. Anyone who could write cruelly about someone who does what Renee does with her life deserves a smack-down. […]
Some of you have followed my blog since the beginning. I feel I have come a long way since then. It goes to show, although one may be near-death, life is not over. It can and should be lived with all its color.
Sabne Raznik*- This book stirs many emotions in me. I am terminal with stage 4 colon cancer. I have written about how those who have been personally affected by cancer, whether the patient or survivor, we have a bond. We have an understanding that did not exist until the ugly hand of cancer came down to torment someone you love. Sabne Raznik has a beautifully poetic way of knitting together a warm and touching story. What makes this so incredibly special is it is not just any story. Sadly, it is a true story about a little boy- And not just any boy, but the nephew of the author. Although it may be a difficult read, it is loving, it is touching, it is truth, it tells the story of all who are inflicted with cancer and of those who love and care for someone with this monstrous disease. The author’s heart is in every word. I cannot think of a better book to buy. The proceeds go toward destroying the beast named Cancer, and there is no other writing which can reach inside and touch you more deeply.
“Captain Chemo: Out, Cancer, Out!” is the first in a series of picture books (“Captain Chemo and Team” series) that explain the process of chemotherapy to small children.
