Virtual Event – Sadie Keller
September 23, 2020 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Magic City Books is proud to welcome Sadie Keller for a virtual author event in celebration of her book, Better Angels: You Can Change the World, You Are Not Alone.
On February 25, 2015, at the age of 7, Sadie Keller was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia. For 2 1/2 years, Sadie fought through many hard times and was out of school for her 2nd and 3rd grade years. Only 2 months after Sadie was diagnosed, she began making videos about what it’s like to have cancer as a child. She did these in a closet without her parents knowing. Sadie hated to not know what to expect, so she made these videos to help other kids not be so afraid.
Sadie’s mission continued as she and her family founded the Sadie Keller Foundation to help raise awareness for Childhood Cancer. And, in Sadie’s own words, “I know how hard it is to fight cancer as a child, first hand. My mission for the Sadie Keller Foundation is to put a smile on the faces of children fighting cancer all over the country, and remind them to keep fighting by giving them special gifts, to raise awareness for childhood cancer, and to make a HUGE impact.”
This free event will be hosted on the Zoom platform. To register in advance visit: https://magiccitybooks.zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_8pvyDMEwRI-9Fkp5sYZtDw.

Out of all the money given to cancer research from the National Cancer Institute, only 4% is given to all childhood cancers. Sadie lobbies in Washington D.C. several times a year to help change this and for several Childhood Cancer Acts. She has helped lobby the passage of the Creating Hope Act, RACE for Children Act, and the STAR Act in which she was invited to the Oval Office while the President signed it into law.
Sadie is a public speaker, an advocate, and helps run her foundation to help thousands of Childhood Cancer fighters all over the United States. Sadie has been seen on Inside Edition, Fox News America’s News HQ, Fox News America’s Newsroom, Fox News Varney & Co., Fox News with Dana Perino, CNN Situation Room with Wolf Blitzer, NBC Nightly News with Lester Holt, and numerous local television across the country. Sadie is also an incredible artist. She is currently 12 years old and in the 7th grade. She received her last chemotherapy on May 26, 2017, and continues to receive monthly checkups and lab work.
