Sarah is ten years old. She tells the story of how her grown up friend is very sick and medicines don't seem to help her too much. Her foot is bandaged and she can't get around without the help of a wheelchair and crutches. Sarah is saddened to see her friend in pain. Her friend must go to the hospital to have a special operation, called an amputation to cure her illness. This is no ordinary or easy operation and though her life will be forever changed, she will inspire a positive way of thinking in those around her with the greatest gifts one can have- laughter and friendship. A note from the author: Please use this book as a tool to engage children in a discussion about what can happen during illness, treatment and recovery. Sometimes the most difficult medical choices can bring about the healing of not only one's body but one's inner self as well. One's life can be just a fulfilling after an amputation as it was before and a good sense of humor IS the best medicine of all. My very good friend handled her own amputation in this way and I hope that her story will inspire those who may experience this life changing situation.
