Childhood Brain Tumor Book Has New Lease on Life

Childhood Brain Tumor Book Has New Lease on Life

Childhood Cancer Guides--a 501(c)(3) charitable organization whose mission is to provide educational and emotional support to families of children with cancer--is trying to keep essential books in print.

Cathie Woodman MD (parent of a brain tumor survivor) and Nancy Keene (parent of a leukemia survivor) are among the founding members. The tiny nonprofit is attempting to rescue four books that previously were a charitable operation of a small publishing company (you can read a little about that history at ). The four books are:

  • Childhood Brain & Spinal Cord Tumors: A Guide for Families, Friends, and Caregivers
  • Childhood Leukemia: A Guide for Families, Friends, and Caregivers, 3rd edition
  • Childhood Cancer: A Guide to Solid Tumor Cancers, 2nd edition
  • Childhood Cancer Survivors: A Practical Guide to Your Future

Childhood Cancer Guides is part of a larger community of people who love someone who has or had childhood cancer. Strong bonds of caring, shared experience, and support tie the group together. Woven throughout the text of the four books are the stories of more than 400 parents, children with cancer, and survivors. More than 150 health care professionals—well-known pediatric oncologists, nurse practitioners, psychologists, educators—reviewed and improved the books. It's a community that none of us wanted to join; but its a wonderful community.

Please visit the website to learn about our nonprofit, read excerpts from the books, discover helpful resources, and find ways you can help. Feel free to pass this on to other lists or individuals in the ped onc community.

Thank you for your friendship and support.
Happy holidays,
Nancy Keene
