Press release from: PublishAmerica

Frederick, MD March 26, 2007-- PublishAmerica is proud to present I Never Signed Up for This!: An Upfront Guide to Dealing with Cancer at a Young Age by Katie Strumpf of Bethesda, Maryland. Strumpf’s powerful book is a must-read for any child/young adult diagnosed with cancer, a childhood cancer survivor, or the family and friends of someone battling cancer. Written by a childhood cancer survivor, the book lives up to its title, with its refreshingly candid approach to battling cancer at a young age. The author details her own diagnosis with cancer, and how every aspect of her life was altered as a result of the disease. I Never Signed Up for This! delivers much-needed information for young cancer patients, everything from returning to school, to dealing with parents and doctors, to losing your hair as a result of chemotherapy. This book delves into delicate topics such as the fear of death, to the difficulty of accepting cancer at such a young age. Strumpf's upbeat attitude and passion for life shines through her writing, and serves as an inspiration for children and young adults battling cancer

A childhood cancer survivor, Katie Strumpf knew that she would one day write a book for young adults with cancer. “When I was diagnosed with cancer at 11, I needed something just like this book to help me along,” she said. “Because the book wasn’t there, I decided to create it, so young cancer patients wouldn’t feel alone in their battle.”

Strumpf grew up in Annapolis, Maryland, and now lives in Bethesda, where she works in the non-profit sector. This is her first book.
