Mommy Bags

For the past few years, I include my books in things called “Mommy Bags” pioneered by a lovely women from CHOP.

When she brought me on board it was uncertain if I could actually manage gifting 30 books without any extra fundraising help. I run my foundation very closely and since I am small,...

Raising Awareness and Gifting Hope

My new website is up and running, my comic book has launched, and I will be making lots of appearances either for book signings or at festivals. It is exciting and a little overwhelming but all in all I am so very happy to have something new to offer in order to donate more money to CHOP. I am hoping to be receiving more calls for appearances so that I can share my new comic book with more and more organizations. My foundation is growing every year and I look forward to see where it will turn next! Right now...

Well, the book is finally here, for sale, and so very cute and heartwarming that I have all good feeling about its success. I do hope that the younger, busier generation takes advantage of this opportunity to read my thoughts and words in a new way. This comic book version gives people who are just too busy or enjoy a graphic novel the chance to read a story of triumph and survival with a very happy ending. Keep your eyes posted as to where I will be in the near future since I will always have both books available...
