About the Book:

Hospitals and treatments can be scary when you're a child and have been diagnosed with cancer or any other life-threatening illness. In We'll Get through This Together, a black lab accompanies a young boy going through cancer treatment. From entering the hospital, to meeting the doctors and nurses, to taking medicine, the patient and the dog journey side by side.

Told from the lab's perspective, this picture book for children offers comfort and provides reassurance that they'll get through it together.

In addition, We'll Get through This Together explains the profound connection between children, our canine best friends, the cancers they both develop, and the promise of comparative cancer research to speed the development of new and better medicines for both. All proceeds from the sale of this book go toward Project Hearts-N-Tails, a program of the Canines-N-Kids Foundation.

My Review:

Narrated from a pet canine's perspective, We'll Get Through This Together provides comfort and understanding to children undergoing cancer treatment. Having a wonder pet, in this case a dog, to lean on during treatment provides comfort to children in hospitals. The author narrates a beautifully illustrated children's book without sugar-coating cancer, treatments, or side-effects, but does not discuss these things harshly.

One of the author's main missions is to alert the world to the under-served populations of children and animals in the advancement of cancer treatments. She launched Canines-N-Kids Foundation to prioritize pediatric and canine cancer research. It's time to bring researchers and doctors together to treat vulnerable populations.

A must have for anyone with children diagnosed with cancer. Wonderful book for children and adults. Highly recommended read!

I received a complimentary copy of this book to read.
