A young boy discovers his dog's lump, which is then diagnosed with those dreaded words: "It's cancer." The boy becomes a loving caretaker to his dog, who undergoes the same types of treatments and many of the same reactions as a human under similar circumstances (transference). Children facing cancer-whether their own, a family member's, a friend's, or even a pet's-will find help in understanding the disease through this book. Medical writer and award-winning children's author, Sherry North artfully weaves the serious subject into an empathetic story that even young children can understand. The For Creative Minds educational section includes: Understanding Cancer, Cancer True or False, Coping with Cancer & Chemo, Preventing Cancer When You Grow Up, Find the Healthy Habits. Additional teaching activities and interactive quizzes are available on the Sylvan Dell Publishing website. This book is the result of a partnership between Sylvan Dell Publishing and the ASCEND Foundation, a 501 (c) (3) registered non-profit with a track record of initiatives designed to make a measureable difference in the battle against cancer, one child at a time.

A sincere, caring story told with a straightforward, honest approach. - School Library Journal Warm color illustrations add the perfect touch to this powerful and memorable story, enhanced with four extra pages of facts about cancer in the back. Highly recommended, especially for public library children's collections. - Midwest Book Review The text educates readers and also offers hope and inspiration to those who have pets, family or friends dealing with a cancer diagnosis. - Wild About Nature
