Literature is a wonderful tool to teach kids about difficult subjects, which is evidenced by existing children's books about cancer. Based out of Calgary, Valerie and Amanda are looking to self-publish a story called 'Always a Princess' which teaches young girls with cancer to see themselves as the royalty that they are.

Currently seeking finances via crowdfunding platform Kickstarter, this picture book aims to help little girls diagnosed with cancer and address fears like being away from friends and family, altering appearances and feeling sick and tired while undergoing treatment. Unlike other children's books about cancer that might focus on other people, 'Always a Princess' teaches the reader about their own treatment with friends like an otter, song bird and butterfly.
