Press Release: EMBRACING CANDACE Book Drive

Author''s book drive to raise funds for facial reconstruction for Candace Battiste, born with Giant Congenital Nevus

Embracing Candace

Author's book drive to raise funds for facial reconstructive surgery

NEW YORK, NY -- Aug. 24 ( eMediaCampaigns! ) -- Author Miriam Jacobs has two objectives: One, to generate revenue for facial reconstructive surgeries for her 8 year-old granddaughter, Candace.

And two, to promote tolerance, education, and compassion for those who have Giant Congenital Nevus; a rare skin disorder that Candace was born with. To reach the objectives, Jacobs is alerting the public that she is dedicating the proceeds from the sales of books she has published.

My Name is Not Monkey Girl and Embracing Candace: Anthology One, both serve as tremendous resources for parents, teachers, grandparents, schools and libraries alike. They were written with the aim of teaching children the importance of unconditional kindness, patience, love, tolerance and compassion.

"I want to thank all the people who have bought the books," commented little Candace. "They really are wonderful books. 'My Name is Not Monkey Girl II' is coming out soon; but I won't tell you what's in it because I want it to be a surprise. I also want to thank my Nana for doing this for me," she concluded.

The inspirational children's story, My Name is Not Monkey Girl was written after a child called Candace a monkey girl. At the time, Candace was simply approaching her to play.

"I decided then and there that parents need to educate their children on how to be tolerant of others who look different from them," explained Jacobs. "I knew that I would someday write a book called, 'My Name is Not Monkey Girl,' and I thank God for giving me the strength and wherewithal to do it."

The author's books are published by her publishing company, Candalyse Publishing. The name was contrived from a combination of her two granddaughters' names, Candace and Alyse.

Miriam Jacobs organized The Candace Battiste Surgery Fund. Launched in March, 2007, The Candace Battiste Surgery Fund is a global partnership. Leading the efforts are 60 authors from all across the globe who contributed their poems, short stories and original artwork for the book, Embracing Candace.

To date, Candace has had nine facial surgeries to remove the Nevus. During the next several years, she is scheduled for additional facial reconstruction surgeries to restore her face, nose, eye and lip to proper proportion. Each surgery requires several thousands of dollars which are not covered by the family's insurance.
