Chronicling Childhood Cancer: A Collection of Personal Stories by Children and Teens with Cancer


In this narrative collection, ten children and teens use their own words and colorful drawings to share their personal experiences with cancer. This diverse collection of patient stories provides insight into the unique lives of these individuals; some are recently diagnosed and undergoing treatment for cancer while others are in remission or have relapsed. These children and teens are honest and perceptive, their stories told with heartfelt emotion.

This is a resource for all interested in learning more about childhood cancer, including health practitioners, family, and friends. These stories also have the potential to help other youth diagnosed with cancer.

Purchase the book on Amazon or, download a reusable and remixable PDF of the book.
