Early Act Rotarians, Cade Kriscunas, (age 11 from Hilton Head Prep School) and Efrain Tinoco, (age 10 from Hilton Head IB Elementary School) with Rotarian Brian Julius (age much older), the Founder and CEO of Speaking Books® showcasing their latest creative concept, “Children Coping with Cancer.”
This Speaking Book for free distribution to children in pediatric oncology wards in the USA, was written in English and Spanish and narrated by our two young speakers, Cade and Efrain, to reach out to all “the other kids just like us with our message of hope and encouragement, to stay strong and brave and to never give up on beating cancer”
With a push of a button, children diagnosed with cancer, and their families and care givers can listen to storyteller “David” speaking in English or Spanish, explaining in an entertaining and uplifting way, what cancer is, their treatment and how they are going to get better. In particular David emphasizes that cancer is an illness, that it isn’t catching, and not caused by being naughty or because of doing something wrong – a popular misconception amongst children and their parents. Although written and recorded primarily for ages 4-12, this publication will be understood and appreciated by all
This groundbreaking Speaking Book was developed with the input and assistance from a number of pediatric oncologists, and endorsed by the World Medical Association, funded by Pfizer and Speaking Books, and has the support of the Rotary Club of Hilton Head to arrange with Rotary clubs throughout the USA, for the free distribution to childrens cancer centers.
