Because we're so lucky

“Because We’re So Lucky It’s Time That We Shared”

by Melanie Bjork Jensen

Gratitude.  Perspective.  Service.

“Because We’re So Lucky It’s Time That We Shared” is an illustrated children’s book about a young boy who gains some perspective with the help of a special little girl with leukemia.  He discovers that he truly is lucky and in turn gains a desire to serve and help others.  A beautiful and timely message in a world that often focuses on self and consumerism.

This book was created in loving memory of Marshall Jensen who passed away from leukemia at age 31 leaving behind a young widow and four year old son.  Learn more about Marshall’s story in this video.

The support ribbon for leukemia is orange.
