Jeannie Ann is a typical six-year-old. When she learns her grandma has breast cancer, it brings up the fears, questions, emotions, and misunderstandings that come with facing a medical challenge. With her loving family by her side, Jeannie Ann learns about what cancer can bring; tumors, mastectomies, chemotherapy, pain, and loss, but also hope. Jeannie Ann’s Grandma Has Breast Cancer is a story written with honesty, love, and understanding for children of all ages.
Diane Davies traveled her own breast cancer journey in 2004. The blessings of a wonderful family, supportive friends, and an outstanding medical team made it possible for her to come through the experience stronger, wiser, and filled with a need to reach out and help others. She has volunteered with the Hastings Breast Cancer Support Group to produce a DVD series entitled Voices of Hope and published the books From There to Here: A Breast Cancer Journey and Breast Cancer Saved My Life. As a Bush Fellow, Davies also helped create a nonprofit advocating for breast cancer patients.
