Bettirose Wishes to Write A Book

wish kid Bettirose
Bettirose says that writing is like her escape from her everyday stresses. It's when she feels most like herself, and getting a story out on a page helps her relax and feel calm.

The book Bettirose wishes to write would be about a teenage girl with superpowers who is held back by a critical illness - and the adventures and experiences she shares with her friends take a new turn. Bettirose considers her experience battling leukemia the inspiration for her character, and it is therapeutic for her to know that her story might help others fighting a similar battle. 

"I want to share a story that'll help other people who are maybe going through an illness or are feeling alone. And I just wanted to help them know that they're not alone," Bettirose said. "Even though I'm sick and there's a horrible situation, I can make something good out of it."
