My Friend Linkin is a non-profit that aims to teach and inspire others 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.
Congrats to PBS Milwaukee on winning gold at the Milwaukee Press Club for this special
My Friend Jaxon centers around life after cancer.
Linkin's interviewing Jaxon and writing about his life now that he hs been cancer free. Linkin asks questions like what does this mean? How is Jaxon handling it? What do doctor appointments look like now?
My Friend Linkin is always looking for kids who may want to share their journey with their friends and family.
Do you know someone who fits that criteria? If you know a child between the ages of 8-18 who is currently fighting cancer, and is willing to share the ups and down of their journey with cancer, click here to nominate them.

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!
