Description

SPECIAL TWO BOOK PACKAGE - One book for you and one to share with a friend. The book is 36 pages, 8x10 paperback format. Nana and the “c” is a book for all ages and all cultures as it is about family and the ability to support a loved one through the challenges of cancer. It is told from a seven-year-old’s perspective as she gathers the courage to face her grandmother’s illness and learns that her irritating younger sister is perhaps smarter than she seems. Together they also learn how to conquer their biggest fear and replace worry with wonder. The story is uplifting and often humorous while symbolizing hope. It will make readers of all ages laugh, cry, and remember their own childhood and the relationships and events that influenced who they have become. The goal of this story is to help children through health crises in their family. The illustrator, editor and designer donated their time to help with the project in order to make possible the donation of copies of the book to waiting rooms of cancer clinics. Author Doris Schneider: An incident took place 10 years ago as I was struggling with the all too common enemy—breast cancer. I shared the story with friends, and they kept insisting I should write it. About a year later, I did and also took photographs of my grandchildren to be used as inspiration for illustrations. So much time has passed, but the story has now floated to the rim of my long-ignored bucket. Nana and the “c” is told from the perspective of my seven-year-old granddaughter as she fearfully prepares to see her grandmother who has become bald as a side effect of chemotherapy. It is a humorous, upbeat story about hope, wonder, and family love—suitable for all ages, especially to anyone with a loved one going through cancer treatment or who is a patient or survivor themselves.
