"Cancer Starts With C" Children's Book Event with Author Leticia Croft-Holguin, Saturday June 22nd, 1-2:30pm!

Florey's Books welcomes author Leticia Croft-Holguin as she discusses her new children's book "Cancer Starts With C".

***Saturday, June 22nd, 1:00-2:30pm***

About the Book:

Cancer survivor Leticia Croft-Holguin introduces cancer to children in a palatable, accessible fashion so that they can grasp the concepts and prepare for changes that will occur as their parents undergo treatment. Cancer Starts with C explains what cancer is and what may transpire, giving parents a much-needed tool to articulate or explain unsettling ideas to their children in the face of a jarring diagnosis.

About the Author:

At 28, Leticia Croft-Holguin was diagnosed with an aggressive form of breast cancer during her ninth month of pregnancy. She underwent eight rounds of chemo, thirty rounds of radiation, and seven surgeries. She became involved with Latinas Contra Cancer in 2010, where she established a program called Young Women and Breast Cancer. Croft-Holguin has been invited to be a keynote speaker at the Breast Cancer Connections ninth annual conference, and has previously presented at Stanford and Santa Clara University. She resides in San Jose, California with her husband Anthony, and two sons, Isaac and Sam.
