An alphabet book with a mission, this 32-page picture book will inspire, comfort, educate and encourage children being treated for cancer. Using colorful, warm, humorous illustrations and verse, the author employs the alphabet to feature different aspects of coping with cancer treatment. Many pages include practical information about where to find help or relief for children at this challenging time in their lives.

Mr. and Mrs. Hair Fairy, creations of the author, are a humorous pair who visit cancer patients on the day they lose their hair and leave them a gift. They also watch over cancer patients and guide us through this heartwarming book of encouragement. Although written for children, the book is great for people of all ages.

H is for Hair Fairy: An Alphabet of Encouragement and Insight for Kids (and Kids at Heart!) With Cancer kicks off the Hair Fairy Project created by the author in memory of her son, Nolan (1985-1993), who went through cancer twice before the age of eight, and in honor of her 17-year-old daughter Andrea, a cancer survivor, who finished treatment for bone cancer in 2004. This non-profit project brings joy and encouragement to children with cancer. For more information about the Hair Fairy Project visit www.hairfairy.org.

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.
