Historical Christian Romance Author
My godson James, aged four and a half, was diagnosed with DIPG, Diffused Intrinsic Pontine Glioma, about a month ago. Since then, he’s struggled with losing mobility on his right side and has gone from incredibly articulate to struggling with communication. The tumor affects breathing and blood pressure. It almost exclusively occurs in children. He has to undergo daily radiation treatments. It is for this reason that this week, from 7/23/17 to 7/29/17, I am donating every cent of my royalties to the Bailey family.
I have set up a page where you can select any of my available books, so shopping is easy.
If you have all of my books, or aren’t interested at this time, I’ve also included the GoFundMe link. If you simply can’t help right now, can you share this with others? Clicking on either image will take you to the page and you can share directly from there. Thank you in advance for your help.
DIPG is currently a terminal diagnosis, but any funds remaining will go to fund research for DIPG.

If you ever met James he would steel your heart in a minute with his uplifting personality and his charming wink. He brightens any room with his contagious belly laugh and fearless attitude. On June 29th our world came crashing down around us when we received the news that our beautiful 4 1/2 year old boy was diagnosed with Diffused Intrinsic Pontine Glioma (DIPG
). This is a rare, inoperable brain tumor which is found on the Pons region of the brain stem. This is the part of the brain which controls many critical functions including breathing and blood pressure and this kind of tumor occurs almost exclusively in children. Unfortunately due to its rarity scientists do not know what causes the DIPG tumor, have a cure or even a better treatment option than radiation to this region of the brain. Because of the DIPG tumor the left side of James body has been effected, making it very hard for our once fiercely independent boy to walk on his own as well as use his left arm and hand. It has also effected his speech. James, who once had a very advanced and articulate vocabulary has now slipped backwards in his communication and fights to speak he way he once did. We are strating a fund to help with medical expenses and will be donating the remaining funds to help in the research of DIPG.
Benefit will run from July 23, 2017 – July 29, 2017. Click on the cover of any of the books below for more information. If my books are not your cuppa joe, here is a link to James’s GoFundMe page.
