Deryn Blackwell is a walking, talking miracle. At the age of 10, he was diagnosed with a rare form of Leukaemia. Then, 18 months later, he developed another rare cancer called Langerhans cell sarcoma. Only five other people in the world have it. He is the youngest of them all and the only person known to be fighting it alongside another cancer, making him one in 7 billion. After 4 years of fighting and with just days left to live – Deryn planned his own funeral. Then a decision his mother, Callie, took changed everything…
Finding the strength and courage to speak out, Callie tells the full story in The Boy in 7 Billion in the hope this will help other families, and raise awareness.
We are pleased to welcome Callie, Deryn’s mother to the store to sign copies of her book and share this amazing story with you.
