Young children who have been affected by a brain tumour diagnosis, either personally or through someone close to them, can gain support and information with our children’s storybook, A Friend in Hope.
This colourful book tells the story of a little girl named Hope and her journey with a brain tumour through the eyes of her friend Danny. The story follows Hope’s journey to wellness and addresses medical procedures, symptoms such as hair loss, hospital stays as well as missing school and friends.
The book is available in three languages:
A Friend in Hope was written in English by Marisa Zammit and illustrated by Erica Dornbusch.
*Multiple copies are also available for schools, libraries and children’s hospitals.
*While Brain Tumour Foundation of Canada is pleased to provide you with copies of A Friend in Hope at no charge within Canada, shipping charges apply to addresses outside of the country ($10.00 for US addresses; $15.00 for overseas). Thank you for your understanding.
Thank you to all of those involved in the creation of the storybook, A Friend in Hope.
