The Bald Headed Princess: Cancer, Chemo & Courage

Maribeth Ditmars

What is a girl with cancer to do? Will her friends still want to hang out with her now that she has cancer? Can she play soccer? How will she deal with being out of school? How will she manage homework from home and the hospital? Can she please get back to a normal life? A life with hair and without chemo? Discover with Isabel that having cancer doesn’t have to change who she is (a budding teenager and an awesome soccer princess). Her strength and courage, and fabulous sense of humour, helps carry her though it all. A tip-sheet for coping with cancer follows the story.

Books can be ordered using the myRedkite online portal.
