Childhood Cancer Guides was founded in 2003 by two parents of children who survived childhood cancer—Nancy Keene and Catherine Woodman, MD. Nancy’s daughter had high-risk acute lymphoblastic leukemia and Catherine’s son had medulloblastoma, a type of brain cancer. Our books are full of stories from hundreds of parents, children with cancer, and survivors of childhood cancer. And they are reviewed by well-known experts in childhood cancer from institutions such as the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, Sick Kids in Toronto, Children’s Hospital of Los Angeles, St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, and dozens of others. More than 100 hospitals and support groups distribute our books to families of newly diagnosed children and teens.
