Jamie's Journey: Cancer from the Voice of a Sibling
Write from the Heart!
As an educator for Mesa Public Schools in Arizona for 30 years, I instructed my students to write from their hearts, to write about topics that spoke to them and ignited a passion within them. I followed my own advice and Jamie's Journey: Cancer from the Voice of a Sibling
was born! 13-year-old Jamie struggles with the complex emotions she feels following her 10-year-old sister, Jordan's cancer diagnosis. Jamie ultimately finds solace expressing her feelings in a journal.
Drawing on my experience volunteering with the Children's Cancer Network, I have written this book especially for siblings of pediatric cancer patients who may feel forgotten and unimportant. Part-book, part-journal, Jamie's Journey: Cancer from the Voice of a Sibling, gives these siblings a safe place to record their own experiences.
I want to teach students to write from their hearts, to let them know that they are not alone in what they are experiencing. This is the gist of my presentation: not the topic of cancer.
