Growing Up with Cancer

by Amy M. Mareck

This is the moving story of a young girl's childhood with cancer and her subsequent death. She wanted to be helpful to other children and wrote honestly about her hopes and fears. The design challenge was to present her words compassionately yet clearly. Other voices in the book are her doctors. A small type ornament gives the lightness this book needs for a very difficult subject.
