Mardie Caldwell Christensen
As a mother and grandmother, Mardie Caldwell Christensen saw firsthand the impact of a stage 3 cancer diagnosis on her seven-year-old granddaughter. After dedicating her life’s work to helping children and families come together through adoption, she found herself helping her own family as they navigated the realities and fears of pediatric cancer. Mardie spun tales at home to entertain and encourage little Ellie throughout her treatment.

An award-winning author, Mardie has written numerous non-fiction books. Ellie is her first foray into picture and story books for children. As she shared this sweet fairy story with a few friends, she found that it was an uplifting story that resonated with anyone who has suffered with hair loss due to cancer treatment, even adults! It is her sincere wish that these same magical stories will encourage other children facing similar diagnoses.
