Nationally acclaimed authors of the book Notes Left Behind will be on the University of Cincinnati campus to help bring awareness about a needed cure for all cancers, starting first with one of the most deadly and difficult: pediatric brain cancer. Brooke and Keith Desserich are the Cincinnatian authors who have been featured in multiple world-wide media outlets with their book atop The New York Times Bestseller list.

Notes Left Behind is the true story of the authors’ six-year-old girl named Elena and her battle against brain cancer. In her last days she showed a community how to love and how to live.

Come learn more about the authors’ experiences, get your book signed, hear how you can help in the UC fight against cancer through Relay For Life and Colleges Against Cancer and get free Graeter’s Ice Cream!

Proudly Sponsored by: UC Community Engagement Leadership House, the UC Center for Community Engagement, the UC student chapters for Relay For Life and Colleges Against Cancer, The Public Library of Cincinnati and Hamilton County and Graeter’s Inc., which will be providing free samples of “Elena’s Blueberry Pie Ice Cream,” a product that benefits The Cure Starts Now Foundation.
