In 2007, I was diagnosed with breast cancer. I was lost; no one in my circle had experienced this.

My new reality included everything I was afraid of... needles, surgeries, and hospitals
.
I endured a battery of tests and painful procedures. I spent weeks in recovery mode, unable to do things I enjoy.

The entire time I kept thinking, "I’m so glad the cancer struck me and not my child!" 

No child should have to go through this, but unfortunately many do. My firsthand experience led me to want to help these children... But how?

The answer came in the form of an adorable little black Poodle, Casey James Parker!
​​

How it all began...

During this time, I was given a camera for my birthday.  Casey was not a fan of the camera at first, and completely refused to look at it. 

Over time though, Casey actually started posing and performing for the camera, and his spunky personality started to shine

I knew I had to share his gift with others
, and bring smiles to everyone.

I've teamed with Children's Healthcare of Atlanta as a "Partner in Hope" to allow proceeds from this book to benefit children suffering from cancer.

Thank you for your support! 

Love, Laura & Casey James Parker
