A young child from South Jersey definitely has an inspiring story that I think we can all learn something from.

His name is Kanen Keating-Wear and he was diagnosed with Ewing sarcoma which is a rare from of cancer that impacts the bones and soft tissue.

But that did not stop this 11-year-old inspiration from sending out a very positive message with the brand new children's book that he wrote himself:

"Days can be rough, but there is a glimmer of hope with the sun and beach."

The book is called HurriKanen Fights Back and you should definitely purchase one because 50% of the profits are given directly to Kanen's family, 25% goes to nonprofit organization Books That Heal which help pediatric patients write their own books and the revenue will go towards covering the cost of creating each book, and 25% is given to the hospital or organization that refers a child to Book That Heal (if there is a referral).

Kanen is actually going through yet another battle with the disease and is hopefully going to be included in an upcoming round test trials for a new drug that will hopefully help his condition. To purchase a copy of this book or for more information on Kanen, click HERE.

To contact Kanen's mother, Karen Knight, shoot her an email at kknight@cmcherald.com.
