Candace is selling a book to save up $277,839 for her surgeries
I am a salesman and I make my living with my product line.
Imagine this little kid working her way through childhood selling her product
line: a book. Her Grandma, the author, is out there beating the bushes doing
book signings all over the place to drum up sales.
Candace Chantel Battiste was born on June 18, 1999 with Giant Congenital Nevus,
a very rare skin disorder. To date, Candace has had ten surgical procedures to
remove the potentially cancerous skin from her face. This precious
child is in need of many additional surgeries to complete the removal
of the remaining nevus and to correct disfigurement of her eye, nose,
Candace is a very special little girl who is
very much like other children. She loves to
have fun, make new friends, play ball, jump
rope and dance. Some day, she wants to become
a fashion model like her friend, Tyra.
I was very impressed that this girl's grandma authored
and published a book to help their own cause.
MY NAME IS NOT MONKEY GIRL was
inspired after a child called Candace a monkey girl. At the
time, Candace was approaching her to play.
My Name is Not Monkey Girl serves as a tremendous resource for parents,
teachers, grandparents, schools and libraries alike.
It was written with the aim of teaching children the importance of unconditional
kindness, patience, love, tolerance and compassion.
Author Miriam Jacobs is on a mission. The seven-time author has set out to raise funds for facial reconstructive surgeries for her
Along the way, she is promoting tolerance, education, and compassion for those
who have Giant Congenital Nevus; a rare skin disorder that Candace was born
The Times Herald Record did an article on this family and they
have been in my thoughts ever since.
Book For Sale
I have a goal to buy 50 books from them this year. With your help I
sold the first 10 and have bought more.
So I figure, hey, maybe some of my customers will add a book or two on
the orders that they are already placing with me. I ordered a book from
Candace to check it out. It is just wonderful. If you have kids in your
family who like books or if you give books as gifts, then pick up a couple
of these books to give.
So I bought 10 books to sell here at The Flag Guys.® They
cost me $10.47 each with the shipping to get them to me and that is exactly what I am
charging for them. I sold those ten and now I have bought 20 more. Help me
by buying them so I can replace them with another 20 books I'll buy from
MY NAME IS NOT MONKEY GIRL
plus s/h per my
The entire $10.87 already went to Candace.
Your purchase will make it possible for me to buy more books from them.

WHAT'S THE STORY
Nine-year-old Candace was born with a birthmark called a

be a real friend in this adventure of a day in the life of a child as seen
through the eyes of a little girl who was born with a Nevus on her face.
Read My Name is Not Monkey Girl with your child to educate them on
tolerance, compassion and unconditional love.
One in more than 200,000 babies is born with a nevus of this considerable size
and located on the face.
Two surgeries a year are tentatively scheduled until she
turns thirteen years of age.
The goal is to raise $277,839 to defray costs of the hospital
operating room fees which are partially covered by the family's health
Anesthesiologist fees, travel expenses from New York to Chicago, and
accommodations for Candace's ten day post-operative stay in Chicago are not
This family is in continued need of your help.
Most of us have a chance to get going with life before we are
eventually challenged with a major medical problem. How must it feel to spend
your childhood dealing with one each and every day. Childhood is supposed to be
for other things.
Thank you for buying Candace's book.
