Adam's Hope!

Four-year-old Adam McCain has Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia. His big sisters are budding writers. Hope, just twelve-years-old, maintains a FaceBook page and blog devoted to Adam's progress--called "Adam's Hope."

I am honored to join Hope and the McCain family Thursday, 06/02/11, 2-4 p.m., for a tween/teen writing workshop sponsored by WRITERS UNITE TO FIGHT CANCER. I get to lead fun writing exercises with JANETTE RALLISON and LISA FINDER. And there's a rumor in the air a few AZ Rattlers might stop by to surprise Adam.

The workshop will be at A+ Book Fairs warehouse in Gilbert, Arizona--45 East Sunway Drive (map). It's free, but you can donate to Adam's medical expense fund. A portion of all books sold at the event will benefit Adam's fund. Please spread the word and bring your friends. This will be a fun event for young writers in the greater Phoenix area.

If you can't attend the event, but would still like to contribute to Adam's fund--just click through to his fund at Give Forward Foundation.

Here's Adam and Hope.
