We'll Get Through This Together!
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.
