thegirlwhogaveherwishawayThe Girl Who Gave Her Wish Away
By Sharon Babineau

The Children’s Wish Foundation approached thirteen-year old Maddison Babineau just after she received her cancer diagnosis. “You can have anything,” they told her, “a Disney cruise? The chance to meet your favorite movie star? A five thousand dollar shopping spree?”

Maddie knew exactly what she wanted. She had recently been moved to tears after watching a television program about the plight of orphaned children in an African village. Maddie’s wish? To ease the suffering of these children half-way across the world. Despite the ravishing cancer, she became an indefatigable fundraiser for “her children.”

    Some great selections in that list. I have read a fair few of those. I would add Joy Chudacoff’s What’s Next?
    Joy deserves a lot of credit for the clear and simple, step by step format in this book and the included worksheets were really helpful for me. I consider it a must-read for business women and aspiring entrepreneurs. I expect to see it popping up in a lot of lists this year, it really is a terrific read.
