When Mindy Bartczak was three years old, she lost her mom to cancer.
Before her mom died, she wrote a powerful book called "Someone I Love Has Cancer" to teach her three kids her illness.
Mindy then attended nursing school to and was performing clinicals at Froedtert when she encountered a patient with cancer.
That patient explained how hard it was to show her grandkids her life journey with the disease in a way her grandkids could understand.
That same patient, however, explained that she discovered a book called "Someone I Love Has Cancer" - the very book Mindy's mom wrote.
Now, Mindy works in the Froedtert and Medical College of Wisconsin Emergency/Trauma Center.
