This book is about a 6-year old girl who loses her daddy to cancer. She shares her feelings and struggles throughout the story, from when she first learned about her daddy's diagnosis to her family's surprisingly pleasant visits to the cemetery. It's a tender story that might comfort and encourage younger children in dealing with the loss of a parent. This is the author's first children's book. Donna lives in Pennsylvania with her husband, Joe, furbabies Baylie (a Golden Retriever) and Jewell (a gray tabby kitten). Donna is a retired teacher after 35 years in education. She enjoys nature, animals, reading, and spending time with family. Several of her students have experienced the death of a parent in recent years. Donna has had her own experiences with death, too, with the loss of both of her parents and her only brother. She hopes her book will bring comfort to children who read My Daddy Got Sick.
