An extraordinary book based on the experiences of Dr. Norman Fried, psychotherapist and counselor to children who are suffering with or dying of cancer, and their worried families and friends. It is intended for the living but is composed in the form of letters addressed to a dozen different children whose last days and months Dr. Fried shared intimately. Drawing a lesson from each experience-in love, family, courage, belonging, etc.-The Angel Letters helps parents and family learn how to make it through the tragedy of their sick or lost child, drawing strength from their understanding of what has happened and from an appreciation for their child's perspective.
