I have a dear dear friend who has cancer. Her name is Barb McGrew and she is one of the most wonderful people I have ever met. Even though I know she is not feeling well, I have never seen her without her hair done, lovely clothing, jewelry and a big lipsticked smile. Barb really lives like everyday is significant. She makes every visitor in her life feel important.

I have spent the last few weeks helping her put together a fantastic book of short stories about a cat she had for 19 years. The book is terrific. It's funny. It's clever. And it celebrates two amazing lives--Barb's and a cat named Ollie.

Soon the book will be on sale and all the proceeds will go to help Barb win her fight against cancer.
