Editorial Reviews

Review

"It’s really good. Maybe even great. You should hunt it down. But it’s about something very scary – childhood cancer – and it doesn’t pull any punches, emotional or physical. There is none of the sentimentality that so often accompanies stories about cancer survivors. Instead, there are real emotions (not just the noble ones) that reinforce Alesia’s humanity, and make her experiences believably real." -- Martha Thomases, ComicMix

"Approximately 12,400 children each year are diagnosed with cancer. Their families are thrown into a world they want no part of and yet they have to quickly learn to navigate it. A book like Alesia’s can give parents and older kids a preview of what they may endure—and more importantly, a whole lot of hope." -- Parents Magazine

This comic book is a MUST READ for everybody!!
Andy Kahn
And the medium of presenting the story in a "comic book" format is unique and almost whimsical.
MM - Chicago
Her inspiring story gives hope to anyone touched by a life threatening illness.

As a cancer survivor and former teacher, I highly rate this book.
Alesia Shute shows just what a difference ONE person can make.
Donating all of the proceeds to the Childrens' Hospital of Philadelphia, shows just how selfless she is.
A fast, great read!

There should be a copy of this book next to every hospital bed in every pediatric ward in the country so that the unfortunate children that are going through similar experiences can be comforted in knowing that they are not alone and that there is indeed hope for them.

This book took me on an emotional roller-coaster ride from choked up to laughing to tears again.

I truly felt anxiety wondering what this poor little girl was going to have to go through next. Seeing how she overcame everything that was thrown at her was truly inspirational. It made my problems seem trivial in comparison. I highly recommend this book to everyone.

Just read "Everything's Okay" in about 4 hours. It was so GREAT I could not put it down. I got it in the mail and the same night finished it. I can not tell you how much I enjoyed it. I never read something that can make you Laugh and Cry sometimes at the same time!! I can actually relate to some of it my mom has been through a few surgeries of this nature. I am so Happy to say I am friends with Alesia and to see how far she has come and how beautiful and happy she is now. Really makes me feel like I can get through anything that may come my way in life. Thanks for sharing your story Alesia!! I know this will help tons of people! '

I had the opportunity to read Alesia's comic and have to say it's absolutely brilliant! The artwork is fresh and the storyline is so real that you want to reach through the pages and give the author a hug. Fortunately, I was not reading this book because of illness, but I have passed it along to several friends who are cancer survivors. This book is a beacon of hope and understanding for those battling an awful disease. Alesia's honesty and no-nonsense approach to her illness will help so many others in similar situations. My heart goes out to anyone reading this book through an illness, but you couldn't find a better literary companion than Alesia Shute.

I was given this book by a publisher friend. By chance I had a 2+ hour flight the next day so I settled into my seat to give this a quick read. I was literally brought to tears at 32,000 feet as I read through the lifelong struggles and victories that Elesia Shute experienced. This was a very inspiring story that will no doubt tug at every reader's heart. And the medium of presenting the story in a "comic book" format is unique and almost whimsical. Best of all, proceeds from the sale of this book are donated to the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia so that other patients fighting this terrible disease can read about the author's inspirational story and how she fought against and ultimately recovered from and beat cancer. This is a great story that benefits a great cause!

Format: Paperback
If you're lucky, you won't get this book because you need it.

Don't get me wrong. It's really good. Maybe even great. You should hunt it down. But it's about something very scary - childhood cancer - and it doesn't pull any punches, emotional or physical.

Alisia Shute was diagnosed with colon cancer when she was 7 years old. She went through years of surgeries, hospital stays, discomfort (which is the polite way to describe pain) and tests. Lots and lots of tests. She also grew up, fought with her siblings, fought with her parents, dated, fell in love, fell out of love, fell in love some more, got married, and had a child. Oh, and she got cancer again after she found out she was pregnant.

Several years ago, she wrote a book about her experiences, which she self-published. With the money raised she raised, she started a non-profit organization, which raises funds for the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia (which she affectionately calls CHoP), her alma mater. This fall, to coincide with Childhood Cancer Awareness Monthl, Round Table Comics is publishing a graphic novel adaptation of her book. All proceeds will be donated to CHoP

When I first heard about this project, I thought, in my condescending way, that it was for children, a way for parents to talk to their sick child (or her siblings) about cancer. I was wrong. This book is too intense to give to a young child. While neither bloody nor gory, Nathan Lueth's artwork conveys Alesia's pain and fear, and the loneliness she feels because she's so different from other kids. It is, however, a great way for parents and other concerned adults to know what a child with cancer is going through.

There is none of the sentimentality that so often accompanies stories about cancer survivors. Instead, there are real emotions (not just the noble ones) that reinforce Alesia's humanity, and make her experiences believably real.

Format: Paperback
Everything's Okay By Alesia Shute is an amazing true story of determination and survival. At the age of 7 Alesia was diagnosed with cancer. She survived six major surgeries that had never been tested on a child. As a child she endured countless hours of pain and months of hospitalization. Alesia grew up quickly and adjusted to being sickly as a way of life. As you read her incredible story you will experience her journey with growing up, struggling in school, boys, dating and marriage. Today everything is truly okay for Alesia Shute. She is a healthy happy wife, mother, grandmother, business owner, philanthropist, and much more. She is an inspiration for all of us. I am glad that she is here today to share her story that is a very helpful guide for anyone dealing with cancer. All of the profits from this book go to The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia. For more information on Alesia Shute visit the everythingsokaybook site and listen to the onlinewithandrea interview with Alesia.
