Did you know there is a “CAN” in cancer?
Sure enough — take a look at those first three letters — C. A. N. — and you’ll see it’s true!
Eli is a young boy who finds out that he has cancer. Not knowing how to feel, his doctor tells him
There is a ‘can’ in cancer, so when your life seems kinda rough, breathe in and out and clear your head and think about better stuff.”
This creatively written book of hope follows Eli’s journey through the eyes of a patient, parents, siblings, teachers, health care providers, and friends.
This book is a must-read for anyone who knows:
- a child who is currently undergoing treatment for cancer
- a child who has a friend or family member with cancer
I am being treated for leukemia at Children’s in Omaha, Nebraska. This book helped me to see that there really is a “CAN” in cancer. It also helped my family and friends understand what having cancer is really like!”

~Ben (age 11)
“This book would be great for explaining what I am going through to my friends and classmates. I am the “CAN” in cancer….”
