The Mission

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.

Featured Friend

My Friend Itzel is at the printer!

This is our first bi-lingual book, written in English and Spanish. My Friend Itzel focuses on relapse and remission. 

My Friend Itzel teaches us about what happens after you think you are done with cancer... and it comes back.

My Friend Linkin is always looking for kids who may want to share their journey with their friends and family.

Get Involved

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!
