As the release date for my debut novel draws closer, I’m happy to share some details about the official pre-order campaign for THE MAGIC OF MELWICK ORCHARD.
The Magic of Melwick Orchard tells the story of 12-year-old girl named Isa who finds herself becoming invisible to her family when her younger sister is diagnosed with cancer. But everything changes when Isa discovers a mysterious apple orchard that offers hope, a little magic, and possibly a lot more trouble...
At its core, the book explores how a major medical diagnosis affects not just the patient, but the entire family. Since it releases in September (Childhood Cancer Awareness Month), my family and I would like to give back and support families facing similar challenges. As such, we have committed to making a personal donation for each pre-ordered copy of the book to Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation (ALSF), a non-profit raising funds for cancer research.
Since 2005, ALSF has helped researchers, scientists and doctors get closer to a cure, raising over $150 million to fund more than 800 research grants. They also provide critical resources to families such as travel for care, parent-to-parent connections, and SuperSibs, a sibling support network. To learn more, visit: www.alexslemonade.org
