From the Publisher
All proceeds from the book will be donated to a non-profit organization to benefit children with cancer. The author wishes to thank two important people by donating her first and second royalty checks from H is for Hair Fairy
to their non-profit organizations which also benefit kids with cancer. They are Saranne Rothberg, founder of the Comedy Cures Foundation, for her insightful suggestions which have greatly improved and enriched the book, and John Beltzer, founder of the Songs of Love Foundation dedicated to writing original songs for children with life threatening or chronic illness (Andrea's song is beautiful! Thank you John!). All proceeds thereafter will be donated to a non-profit account set up for the Hair Fairy Project through the West 86th Street Optimist Club.
About the Author
lives in Indiana, is nearing completion of her elementary education degree at Ball State University and is the mother of five children. With optimism and hope, she and her husband have helped two of their children through three bouts with cancer-each one different, rare, and requiring intense treatments. Being intimately familiar with the ups and downs of helping a toddler, elementary age, and teenage child live with cancer, Kim has chosen to focus on the positive and is using the insights she has gained to encourage and comfort others. Her dream is to bring smiles to the faces of families living with cancer, and she is currently in the process of creating the Hair Fairy Project in memory of her son, Nolan, and in honor of her daughter, Andrea, to bring more joy to more kids living with cancer.
