About this Book:

After developing symptoms of colon cancer, Zeke discovers that he has a rare disease Familial Adenomatous Polyposis (F.A.P). He takes a trip to the hospital and meets Katie, who has the same disease! Zeke must be treated for his symptoms, illnesses, and all of the fuss that makes him feel mad and sad at the same time. With the help of doctors, his new friend, Katie, and his mom, Zeke learns how to face his feelings, and bounce back from his treatments and diagnosis through true friendship.

About the Author:

Jenny Jones was diagnosed with the rare diseases Familial Adenomatous Polyposis and Short Bowel Syndrome as a child that continue to greatly impact her life. Through her experiences, she has dedicated her life to the rare disease and chronic illness community to empower others, raise awareness, and research funds.

Jenny knew at a young age she wanted to be in the medical field to provide care to others – only she didn’t expect the path she finally chose. Due to developing medical PTSD related to her health experiences with Familial Adenomatous Polyposis (F.A.P.), she realized she would not be able to physically administer health care. Her medical PTSD experiences led her to discover a new passion – helping to empower others with chronic illness. Jenny has dedicated her professional and personal time to the rare disease and chronic illness communities by providing counseling, education, raising awareness, and research funds for the F.A.P. Research Fund, she started through NORD. Others may say not to let your chronic illness define you, but Jenny has been able to discover motivation and purpose through her rare diseases.

To learn more about Jenny’s medical experiences, follow along on Life’s a Polyp.
