Help Marcus Sakey Fight Pediatric Cancer

Scar Tissue by Marcus SakeyThrough the end of this month, which is Pediatric Cancer Awareness Month, author Marcus Sakey is contributing 100% of the proceeds from the sales of his short story collection Scar Tissue: Seven Stories of Love and Wounds to the Team Julian Foundation, a not-for-profit organization dedicated to raising funds for childhood cancer research.

The foundation was started by The Boivin family in memory of their son Julian, who was diagnosed with an incurable brain tumor at the age of 4. Marcus Sakey, television host and author living in Chicago, is a personal friend of Brad and Nettie Boivin, and together, they are using the growing popularity of e-books to raise money for a worthy cause.

50% of the proceeds from the sales of Scar Tissue will continue to be contributed to the Team Julian Foundation beyond September.

Scar Tissue is available at Amazon as both an e-book and on audio, and for as little as $2.99 you can both help provide funds for pediatric cancer research and enjoy a great collection of stories. That’s a win all around.

    I went on the Team Julian Foundation website yesterday for my LitReactor piece and my heart broke ten different ways. Bought a copy of Scar Tissue and will bump in the TBR

      I can’t even begin to imagine the pain of losing a child, let alone one so young. So nice to see people coming together to make something positive happen in Julian’s memory.
