My Friend Linkin is a non-profit that aims to teach and inspire other about childhood cancer. MFL is dedicated to advancing the education of childhood cancer through the biographies of kids in our My Friend series. These books humanize the journey of cancer through a children's book written by other children. Children ask the hard questions and those who are fighting the battle are eager to share their story.
Since 2017 when Naudia followed Linkin's journey interviewing Linkin, his family, and following him to cancer treatments, MFL has been writing books about different children and through the process of discovery, these books tell us how different every cancer really is. Naudia complied all of her notes and wrote a book to help children like her understand cancer better. Shipped worldwide, My Friend Linkin has educated so many children (and adults!).
No matter the hardships families face, a project like MFL is a unique piece of the journey that will stay with them forever.
My Friend Linkin thrives on sponsorship and donations. Book publications are expensive. It costs, on average, $5,000 to have a kid go through the My Friend process. If you're a company and you're interested in sponsoring a child or a book, please learn more and lets work together to achieve our dreams!
We have a lot of events where we need as much help as possible! If you're looking for a great team building experience, a way to get volunteer hours, a church looking for a great cause, or a family looking to help others, My Friend Linkin can help. Learn more about donating time, having a book drive, or creating raffle baskets for our events!

In an unprecedented time, there are many feelings we may be experiencing. Fear, uncertainty, anger, confusion, and grief are just a few that come to mind. Sometimes, it takes a good deed for others to remember the silver lining a crisis may bring. Making someone else’s day. Shining light unto others. Being grateful. Here at My Friend Linkin, above anything, we like to bring joy. Joy to families in uncertain times. We’ve been thinking hard how to help support those who are affected by COVID-19, and given the extreme circumstances surrounding it, we know we have to help.
When a person rushes to the emergency room, they do not have time to think about anything other than getting to the hospital. We want to support our local eats and families in the hospital. Please consider helping us by donating monetarily so we can purchase UberEats, Grubhub, and DoorDash gift cards for families at Children’s Hospital of WI. Using our donations, we will buy gift cards and donate them to Children’s who can hand them out to families at the hospital.
Families can choose from 100+ restaurants in the area that deliver to Children’s. Not only are you supporting families who are facing challenging times, but you are supporting local eats around the city that also need our help staying afloat. Together, we can help multiple people in our community and make the world a kinder place. Together, we can focus on feeding those in need and supporting our community. Together, we can make a difference.
Please join us.
