Zoey's List of Love: A Sweet, Breast Cancer Survival Story
by Lisa Klenoshek      
Zoey is a creative 6 year old who discovers something strange is
happening at home. Soon she learns that her Momma has breast
cancer and she wants to help. Zoey helps take care of her mother each
step of the way through her cancer treatment by making "Lists of Love"
and carrying them out. Soon her Mom is well again after surgery,
chemotherapy, and radiation and Zoey is excited that she was there to
help. This story discusses cancer treatment in a simple to understand
manner and allows children to feel a part of the family problem and
solution. It also confirms a child’s fears and lets them know they are ok
to have.
Zoey’s List of Love: A Sweet Breast Cancer Survival Story is author Lisa Klenoshek’
s first children’s book.  Lisa discovered her passion for writing when she began a
journal about her fight with breast cancer.  Diagnosed at 41 years of age in May
2009 after a routine mammogram, it is from her heart and personal experience
that she wrote
Zoey’s List of Love.    Lisa hopes her book will help other breast
cancer patients to talk to young children and explain the difficult process to
wellness.  And if she inspires someone to get a mammogram, well, that would be
awesome, too!  Lisa was born in western Pennsylvania, but raised in Ohio.  She’s
a graduate of Miami University in Oxford, Ohio.  Lisa currently resides near
Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, where she loves being a stay-at-home mom.  When she’
s not writing, Lisa is baking something yummy!  She lives with her husband, Bill,
and their daughter, Zoey Rose.  Visit Lisa’s website at
