If I Were a Little Guy PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

If I Were a Little Guy free pdf This book was inspired by the author's father, Milton J. Kramer, who in January 2004 at the age of 56 years, was diagnosed with terminal pancreatic cancer that had metastasized to his liver. As he laid in the Denver Hospital, his children surrounding him, huge snowflakes began to drop from the sky. Looking out the window, he said "Man, If I were a little guy I could climb on one of those and float on down." This book explores other opportunities for little guys as well as expressing an appreciation for big guys, such as our dads. Following his diagnosis the author and her siblings spent many wonderful days with their dad during his final two months. The author remembered one occasion in particular. Milt received a solicitation call from an organization raising money for children with cancer. Of the one sided conversation she heard him say " I really wish I could help, I have cancer myself, I am not working and won't receive any benefits until August. Call me then and I will gladly contribute" (he passed away in April). After he hung up he said, "I am dying, but I have lived a real full life, done everything I wanted, done a lot of things I didn't think I would. It just doesn't make sense that these kids have to suffer without experiencing life, I wish I could help." "If I Were a Little Guy" will do just that - help. A portion of all sales proceeds will be donated to the Children's Cancer Fund.
