CiCi and The Cancer Monster

Your Story
My name is Finley and I am seven years old. My grandmother is called CiCi. Last year the doctor told CiCi that she had cancer. I was scared but CiCi was brave. I am proud of her for fighting the Cancer Monster. I wrote this book to tell CiCi’s story so everyone knows how she beat the Cancer Monster. I hope this book can help other kids understand more about cancer. Sometimes kids think they can’t do anything to help, but there are lots of things we can do. We can walk to raise money to fight cancer. We can sell lemonade and send the money we make to a cancer-fighting place. I am growing my hair for Locks of Love so that people who lose their hair like CiCi did can have a wig to help them feel proud and happy. I wrote a book about my grandma called CiCi and The Cancer Monster. One apon a time there was a beautiful girl named CiCi. She worked so hard doing great things for her grandaughters and granbrothers. Then one day she was visited by the Cancer Monster. Her children and grandchildren were very sad. The monster was big, ugly, green and stinky because he didn’t shower for ten years. Peaww! The monster tried to steal her fun from her heart. He made her very tired and weak. Her family was angry. They wanted their CiCi back. CiCi and her family decited to fight the monster. They mixed up a poshin. The poshin was called Chemo. CiCi had to take it for a long time. It was very strong so it could fight the cancer monster. The poshin was so strong that it made her hair come out. She was beautiful anyway, but she decited to go shopping for wigs. She picked the most amazing wigs. She got to play dress up every day. She wanted to beat the monster but be proud wile doing it. So she wore wigs of many colors. Green for St. Patricks day, blond for partys. The monster had a hard time finding her. She was disguised in her wigs and was starting to feel better. The poshen was working. CiCi’s hair grew back. Her family was so excited to see there CiCi back to herself. As for the Cancer Monster . . . he was mashed by . . . the siviver CiCi. “Horray for CiCi!” She had a very big party. Everybody was invited. We got to go in the hot tub on the boat and eat delicous food. They all had so much fun and lived happily Ever After! The End
