Dom is a 7 year old boy whose grandfather had cancer. Dom interviewed him for a school report and created this book. As a bit of translation – the boxing ring scene is grandpa fighting cancer and the semi-truck represents the load grandpa is carrying in his life. Encourage your child to create the story of a loved one’s journey…you’ll be amazed at their perceptiveness and have a treasure to hold dear.
