Chubby’s Tale is a children’s book about chemo and cancer, written by Carola Schmidt, a Pediatric Oncology Pharmacist from Brazil. It’s a wonderful story that will help families speak to children about cancer, and engage in conversation while enjoying beautiful illustrations. I’m a prostate cancer survivor and found myself cheering for Chubby and caring for his health.
The book arrived in the mail, and I had to include our larger dog Maya, in the picture, as she doesn’t allow me to pick up the mail unless I give her a cookie. She has been a great source of comfort during my prostate cancer treatment and continues to support me in recovery. Our other dog Nelly, although another great source of comfort, doesn’t like her photo taken!
