About the Author
About the Authors Meaghann Weaver, MD, MPH, FAAP, is a pediatric oncologist and Chief of the Division of Palliative Care at the Children's Hospital and Medical Center in Omaha, Nebraska. She works with a wonderful interdisciplinary Hand in Hand team which strives to foster the strengths and graces of children and families in the Heartland. Dr. Weaver's favorite life moments are spent painting, dancing, cooking, and gardening with her amazing daughter, Bravery. Dr. Weaver dreams of one day returning to Africa with her family. Lori Wiener, PhD, DCSW, is co-director of the Behavioral Science Core and Head of the Psychosocial Support and Research Program at the pediatric oncology branch of the National Cancer Institute. As both a clinician and behavioral scientist, Dr. Wiener has dedicated her career to applying what she has learned from her work with seriously ill children and their families to create new therapeutic, communication, and educational tools. She lives in Annapolis, Maryland with her family and several animals, including a pup named Tessa, a rescue cat named Tupelo, and a pond filled with goldfish, koi and noisy frogs. One of Dr. Wiener's favorite pastimes is photographing the migration of snow geese. About the Illustrator Mikki Butterley has illustrated everything from greetings cards, to bibles for children, to picture books. She studied graphic design at Blackpool College of Art and Design, after which she worked for a local greeting card company, learning the skills of emboss, die-cut and foil drawings (no computers in those days!), and eventually moved on to freelance illustrating. She then spent 10 years as a senior in-house artist for Hallmark greeting cards before moving back to freelancing to have more time to travel and be with family. Her favorite places to visit are old halls and castles (especially their gardens!), her family's cabin in England's Lake District, and anywhere with a jungle. She lives with her family in South Yorkshire, England.
