Thanks SO much to all who participated,
especially my partners,

Getting the word out about the book drive

Why do a Book Drive?
Great question! I was diagnosed with arthritis at 13 and didn't meet another young person with arthritis until I was 21. I didn't know of any books featuring kids like me, and I often felt devastatingly alone. Having access to a book like Cursed back then likely would have made a huge difference for me. Helping kids feel less alone and more heard is a big part of why I wrote this book! Celebrating the release of the paperback by getting free copies to kids who might really benefit from seeing themselves reflected in the pages of a book felt like a great way to wrap up my incredible journey with Cursed.
CoachArt sounds kinda cool!
They totally are!
Their mission is to create a transformative arts and athletics community for families impacted by childhood chronic illness. They offer free art and athletic lessons to chronically ill kids and their siblings, ages of 5-18. Click HERE to find out more about their programs.
