Hope & the Dragon By: Matthew Epp

Hope & the Dragon By Matthew Epp

http://www.aaspirationspublishing.com/

WE ARE SOOO EXCITED ABOUT THE BOOK THAT MATTHEW HAS WRITTEN. MATTHEW HAS BEEN ON OUR PRAYER LIST FOR A WHILE. HE'S AN AMAZING YOUNG MAN!!!

What happens when an inspiring boy uses the four powerful values of Hope, Faith, Courage and Love to overcome adversity? First-time young author Matthew Epp is all too familiar with this. Since the age of 2, the boy from Fiske, Saskatchewan has successfully combated a rare form of cancer. But now, the 14-year-old is fighting the cancer relapse of his life. His book Hope and the Dragon is finally providing young cancer patients with something they've never had: a powerful story written by one of their peers, offering the strength to beat the illness. The story tells how a boy undergoing surgery to remove a tumour dreams of a magical land. While a dragon becomes the metaphor for the cancer, the boy receives four special powers to slay the demon. Beautifully illustrated by Maris Chisholm, Hope and the Dragon explores a personal life story - from surviving a major illness to embracing the support of loved ones. "I have Hope, Faith and Courage on my side and Love standing guard at my back. No Dragon in the world is a match for all that," says the boy in the book, based on Epp's own courageous journey. Hope and the Dragon will certainly fill anyone with inspiration and tell them what it takes to survive a major challenge.

DID YOU KNOW THESE FACTS:

DID YOU KNOW?

From Jacob's Site: http://www.caringbridge.org/fl/jacob/

In the U.S. almost 3000 children die from cancer

each year.

Cancer is the number one disease killer of

children.

In the past 20 years only one new cancer drug has

been approved for pediatric use.

Only 3 percent of the budget from the National

Cancer Institute goes towards Pediatric Cancer

Research.

September is Pediatric Cancer Awareness month,

which nationally goes largely unrecognized.

The government recently cut the budget for

Childhood Cancer Research.

14,000 children will be diagnosed this year with

cancer.

Currently there is between 30-40,000 children being

treated for cancer in the US.

As a nation, we spend $14 BILLION per year on the

space program, but only $35 MILLION on childhood

cancer research per year
