Cookies for Kids' Cancer

September is Childhood Cancer Awareness month. As some of you know, my forthcoming novel COUNTING THYME centers on a girl named Thyme whose little brother is fighting neuroblastoma. As I work to improve this novel, I often read the blogs of families and children affected by childhood cancer, which is as devastating as it is unfathomable. I owe a debt to their sharing, their kindnesses, and their struggles. I hope to honor their children with Thyme's story in 2016. Until then, I will continue to support my friend's amazing organization, Cookies for Kids' Cancer.

  1. Can't wait to read your book, Melanie! My daughter's friend died of cancer last year. I'm still thinking about it, how this young girl had such an impact on so many people who didn't even know her, like me. Childhood cancer is such a devastating thing.
