About the authors: “How much you live isn’t all about the years, but about the people you touch, the difference you make, and the joy you bring to others.” - Sadie Keller These are the words of 13-year-old cancer survivor turned advocate, Sadie Keller, in her first book Better Angels. She was diagnosed at age seven with leukemia, fought it, and is here to talk about it today! From the first day of her journey, she wanted to help other kids and shared her cancer story from her mom’s closet on her YouTube channel. Her journey went viral. Sadie has come a long way since then and is now sharing her story, full of determination and inspiration, in her new book, written with Congressman Michael McCaul. Sadie and the Congressman have been seen most recently on Good Morning America and Fox & Friends, as well as Inside Edition, NBC Nightly News with Lester Holt, Fox News America’s News HQ and America’s Newsroom, CNN Situation Room with Wolf Blitzer, and numerous local television stations nationwide.
“At a time when you think nothing useful can get done in government when the country seems completely divided when you think that nothing but money drives whatever goes on in Washington, you just need to listen to Sadie.” Congressman Michael McCaul Congressman Michael T. McCaul is currently serving his eighth term representing Texas' 10th District in the United States Congress. Ten years ago, shortly after he was first elected to Congress, McCaul founded the Congressional Childhood Cancer Caucus to give a voice to the nearly 16,000 children diagnosed with cancer every year and the survivors who face long-term health issues stemming from the treatments they received as children. He has worked to bring about major legislation in the fight against childhood cancer.
