"the best book on this subject that she has seen yet"

Christiana Care Breast Center at The Helen F. Graham Cancer Center recently hosted a Fall Breast Festival. As part of this event, they generously made it possible that all of their patients and breast cancer survivors attending received a copy of our book Butterfly Kisses and Wishes on Wings: When someone you love has cancer... a hopeful helpful book for kids.

The staff at
The Breast Center Festival at
Helen F. Graham Cancer Center
set my signing table with
beautiful flowers, butterly garland and festive felt butterflies on the table
This except is from a wonderful email that I received following my recent book signing at the Breast Center  
"My mother, Ellen, would like to donate a book to the Tower Hill School library.  
Ellen (or Meghan and Jack's Nana) is a 29 year breast cancer survivor.  Last week, she attended an event at the Helen Graham Breast Center of Christiana Care Hospital.  During the event, she was given a book called "Butterfly Kisses and Wishes on Wings" signed by the illustrator Nanci Hersh.
My mother worked for years at the American Cancer Society in their Patient Services division.  She has realized that there is not a lot of information for young children when their parents are going through cancer.  It's a beautiful book for parents to read to their children...a resource about how to talk to a child about a parent's cancer diagnosis...the best book on this subject that she has seen yet!
She was delighted to have received this book and to be able to give it onto others."

Excerpts from an email from Christine, whose mom, Ellen attended the event.  
Thank you Ellen, and Christine for being a wonderful part of our Gift -it-Forward program!
