My Pink Ribbons

by Marissa Johnson

Hope wants to be a professional ballerina when she grows up, just like her mom. In fact, there is only one thing in the world that eight-year-old Hope loves more than dancing, and that’s her mom. Hope knows how fortunate she is to have her mom too, because she had breast cancer before Hope was born. Hope knows cancer is a big word, so what exactly does having breast cancer mean? 

With a little help from her loved ones, Hope learns just what exactly cancer is, how her mom fought it, and how to be brave despite health challenges. As the annual dance recital approaches, Hope is inspired to do something special and show her mom just how much she loves her. A breast cancer diagnosis can be overwhelming, especially for young children. But as Hope teaches us, learning how to understand and cope with breast cancer through knowledge, treatment, and support proves that women can overcome anything. In the face of adversity, it always helps to have hope.
