This is the companion book to the documentary that will be released on PBS. A Lion in the House is a documentary by two filmmakers about 6 years in the lives of 6 children stricken with cancer and their battle for survival. It shows their pain, their families pain, the thoughts, feelings, and decisions that the families face while watching their children suffer with this horrible desease. A poweful documentary that received a standing ovation at the 2005 Sundance Film Festival, this companion book gives the reader a firsthand look inside the lives and minds of the individuals and families that cancer has interrupted. The book contains more than the film such as, where families can turn for emotional support, how people can help stricken families, and memorabilia of those who passed away.
