September is Pediatric Cancer Awareness month, and with that, I’d like to tell you about book that details the lives of one family who faced the battle of a young child with cancer.
About Hope Faith and Charlie
John & Deirdre Capodanno had been married for five years and were the doting parents of two beautiful, happy and healthy sons, Jay, age two, and Charlie, who was just shy of six-months old. Life was good: they had a strong marriage, solid careers, a comfortable home, and a beautiful little family created out of love. Then the sky fell in. In an instant, their life together was turned upside down with the discovery that Charlie had a massive brain tumor. Further diagnosis would uncover a rare form of brain and spine cancer that would more than likely take his precious life far too soon.
My Review of Hope Faith and Charlie
I have had the opportunity to work with Deirdre on many PR related projects over the last few months. Recently, she reached out to me on a personal level and asked if I would be willing to read her book and share it with my readers. How could I turn it down?
I started reading the book the day I received it, and I had finished it by the next day. I stayed up almost all night reading because I couldn’t put it down. I laughed, I cried, and there were even tears of joy. Charlie’s story is truly inspiring, to say the least, and his story proves that we can believe in miracles.
Deirdre did an excellent job of writing this book. You can tell that she poured her heart and soul into every word on every page. I felt like I was right there, standing along side her and her family as they battled Charlie’s cancer head on.
The tests, the surgeries, and the treatments Charlie had to face are more than any child should have to endure. The family’s never-give-up attitude and determination are enough to encourage and inspire even the most skeptical.
I would recommend this book to anyone who likes to read. If you know a family that has a child battling cancer, or if you just want to be encouraged and inspired by a very tough little boy and his family, this book is a must read. I think it would also make a really great Book Club book. Check out their website, www.hopefaithandcharlie.com for more information, photos, and so much more. This is one family everyone should get the opportunity to meet.
