Sunday Morning Spotlight: My Dog Named Hope
It’s a short tale with a growing impact. My Dog Named Hope is a fictional account of one girl's journey through childhood cancer written by Joe Dean and illustrated by Lauren Curwick, a pediatric oncology student at the Medical College of Wisconsin.
All of the proceeds go to pediatric cancer research and services. Specifically, half the proceeds go to The MACC Fund and the other half goes to Designing Dreams, a local non-profit started by Lauren Curwick whose mission is to inspire hope and happiness in the lives of children with cancer by making their dream bedroom a reality. So far, the book has raised more than $50,000.
Recently, the author and illustrator sat down with Mike Strehlow to talk about their books unexpected success.
