Jamie’s Journey: Cancer from the Voice of a Sibling

by Sharon Wozny

For the reader who is facing a roller coaster of emotions because of a critical illness in the family.  Part story/part journal, Jamie’s Journey Cancer from the Voice of a Sibling, explores the emotions someone may experience while navigating this new normal of their lives. The diagnosis is not important; the emotions is the common bond. The journal provides a safe place for the reader to begin healing while realizing they are not alone in having these feelings.

13-year-old Jamie struggles with the complex emotions she feels after her 10-year-old sister, Jordan, is diagnosed with cancer. Jamie ultimately finds solace expressing her feelings in a journal. Drawing on her experience volunteering with the Children’s Cancer Network, author Sharon Wozny has written this book especially for siblings of pediatric cancer patients who may feel forgotten and unimportant. Part-book, part-journal, Jamie’s Journey: Cancer from the Voice of a Sibling gives these siblings a safe place to record their own experiences.
