Better Angels by Sadie Keller
Diagnosed with cancer at age seven, Sadie snuck into her mother’s closet and filmed an instructional video to help kids like her. It became a viral sensation.
Now a survivor, Sadie’s book BETTER ANGELS tells the story of her journey and the “angels” she met along the way: friends, family, strangers, and some of the most powerful people in the world.
Better Angels was co-authored by Congressman Michael McCaul, a friend and mentor to Sadie who works on the front lines to increase awareness and funding for childhood cancer fighters and their families.As the founder of the Congressional Childhood Cancer Caucus, he led the fight for new laws to help the 16,000 children diagnosed with cancer each year, as well as survivors facing the long-term effects of their treatment. Sadie feels privileged to have worked closely under his guidance to articulate the untold parts of her journey.
