Some Related Comments:

"An inspirational story about a boy’s battle with cancer and the profound effect on his family and friends, movingly recounted by author Geraldine Guadagno. But it’s also a story about God’s compassion and care made known in their lives. A “must read” – but with a box of tissues at the ready."

"John of the Smiles explores the spiritual journey and transformation of a young boy and his family as they endured his terminal illness. By exploring the details of little John’s short but extraordinary life, Ms. Guadagno reveals how a family and community embraced the illness and experienced the closeness of God’s love right in front of them. Even though little John had a frail body, Ms. Guadagno demonstrates how God revealed a treasure within little John and how Christ’s “power was made perfect in weakness.”
