If you know someone who has died from cancer. Please share their story in a comment or post on your blog with link. All of the fundraisers we did for Kailey can be done for all of the other boys and girls that have leukemia or any other type of cancer. We gave Kailey a year. What can we give someone else?
Now for the book part. I looked up a few cancer/loss related books. Some of them I'll be reading to bring me comfort in this hard time. One of the books I'm going to do a teaser about after the list.
- I've not read this book, but the reviews said that this really describes what cancer is like. I'll post the review soon.
Lurlene McDaniel- She is an author who has written tons of books about cancer and terminal illnesses. I haven't read anything by her, but I think since she has written so many it's worth a look at.
I've read stuff by this author before, and he's hilarious but can still get to the point of serious topics so I'm excited to read this one and laugh while I'm grieving.
My Sister's Keeper by Jodi Picoult- Of course the obvious one, but I think this one is better suited for older readers because this is about a girl who was basically born to give organs to her sister who has a disease. She finds out and gets a lawyer to avoid this. I'm not interested in this book because I rather read about loss than some brat who doesn't want to give organs to her sister just because her parents made a mistake.
Though this book isn't about leukemia or cancer. I wanted to get this because the girl seemed a lot like me, shy and booky. So I picked it up because I thought it would help me deal with my grief.
If you have any more books please leave a comment or any words of advice for me I would love to hear from you.
Should be Reading. I'm going to do two teasers.
1)The Sky is Everywhere, and 2) A Time for Dancing.
Thank you for reading through this long post, and for all your support. Please help me let Kailey's memory live on, and give back to other people who have leukemia or who have lost someone to leukemia. -Kailey's Krew Forever.
