September is National Childhood Cancer Awareness Month, and I will be doing some blogging and sharing about my experiences with children who struggled with this disease and the families who walk that journey with them. My son had a lot of medical issues when he was young and we spent many days and weeks in children’s hospitals, sitting alongside families whose children had devastating diseases. This is one of the hardest roads to walk in life, and my compassion for these families has only grown over the years.
My experiences led me to write Holding On, a book about a mother struggling to keep her son alive through his fight with leukemia and the incredible journey she endures in the process. From the day it was published, I have donated a percentage of the proceeds of this book to St. Jude’s to help children with cancer and other serious diseases. I continue to make that commitment and hope that my contributions will make a difference in someone’s life. In September I make it a focus.
As a part of this month’s efforts, I will be giving away numerous copies of Holding On. To enter the drawing, just add your name to the Email Updates subscriber box in the top right corner of the page and you will automatically be entered for this month’s drawings and also for drawings throughout the year. Every subscriber gets three free gifts the minute they complete the registration process, so whether or not you win a free book, you win. 🙂
Subscribers also get VIP treatment, which means they are the first to learn about new updates or specials, they get coupons that aren’t available to the public, and they receive freebies whenever I have them available.
I hope you will join me in raising awareness this month. Check back each week for a new blog article on the subject.
Until then, happy reading!
