About the Author:
Denise Zaffuto has always loved to write! Her dream was to someday write childrens books, but never did she imagine it would be about herself and her never-ending illness. The roots of this book came when she was home out of work from her most adored job, being an elementary school teacher. As a teacher, she knew there werent many childrens books out that entail experiences from a childs point of view and how their innocent minds, at a young age, think that a doctor can fix anyone.
As Denise witnessed the confusion and sadness upon her own childrens faces concerning her disease, it sparked her to write this book. With every lung collapse she faces, her family faces it too. Together, they have all managed to get through them thus far! Her faith in God and love for her family keeps her strong.
