Lo­cal au­thor do­nates to Alex’s Lemon­ade Stand Foun­da­tion

Septem­ber is Child­hood Can­cer Aware­ness Month

The Boyertown Area Times - - LOCAL NEWS - From Danelle Mat­lack

Re­cently lo­cal chil­dren’s au­thor Danelle Mat­lack vis­ited Alex’s Lemon­ade Stand Foun­da­tion in Bala Cyn­wyd to make a mon­e­tary do­na­tion and pro­vide ALSF with a sup­ply of her most re­cent book, “Suzie Sun­shine: The Ad­ven­tures of a Sweet & Sassy Lady­bug.” ALSF will gift the signed copies to their child­hood can­cer heroes.

Mat­lack’s most re­cent book “Suzie Sun­shine: The Ad­ven­tures of a Sweet & Sassy Lady­bug” tells the story of the un­likely friend­ship be­tween Suzie, a sweet and sassy, lemon­ade lov­ing lady­bug who is seek­ing ad­ven­ture, and Ella, a friendly young girl from Philadel­phia. This story en­cour­ages young read­ers to have con­fi­dence and try new things. It demon­strates how un­likely friend­ships of­ten lead to the best ad­ven­tures. A por­tion of this book’s pro­ceeds are be­ing do­nated to Alex’s Lemon­ade Stand Foun­da­tion for Child­hood Can­cer.

In speak­ing of be­ing a pub­lished au­thor, Mat­lack, said, “I’m very thank­ful for the con­tin­u­ing sup­port. My first pub­lished book “Al­fie the Al­ler­gic Al­li­ga­tor Goes to School” helps chil­dren with food al­ler­gies feel ac­cepted within their school com­mu­ni­ties. I feel priv­i­leged to be able to visit schools and ed­u­cate youth about this grow­ing health con­cern that 1 in 13 chil­dren cur­rently face. With my sec­ond book “Suzie Sun­shine: The Ad­ven­tures of a Sweet & Sassy Lady­bug” I de­cided to part­ner with Alex’s Lemon­ade Stand Foun­da­tion and do­nate a por­tion of book pro­ceeds to the cause. Be­ing that one of the main char­ac­ter’s fa­vorite drinks is lemon­ade I felt the part­ner­ship would work by rais­ing aware­ness and funds for Alex’s Lemon­ade Stand Foun­da­tion!”.

Septem­ber is na­tional Child­hood Can­cer Aware­ness Month. If you’d like to do­nate to Alex’s Lemon­ade Stand Foun­da­tion or to learn more about their events, visit www.alexsle­mon­ade. org.
