Janet Dobson is a mother, entrepreneur, real estate investor, world traveler, community volunteer, and now author. She immerses herself in projects she is passionate about. Follow along as she debuts her latest adventure, Tracey and The Heroes in Blue.
As a cancer survivor herself, Janet understands the importance of organizations such as the Roc Solid Foundation. She has seen firsthand how the RSF is making life-changing impacts on families fighting pediatric cancer. After participating in a RSF event, she was immediately moved to get more involved. Janet has become an essential part of the RSF volunteer and fundraising team. This is what sparked the creation of her book, Tracey and The Heroes in Blue.
After weeks of being hospital bound fighting pediatric cancer, Tracy finally comes home. But she soon discovers that life at home will look very different from now on. “Maybe you should lie down and rest before dinner, Tracy.” “Wash your hands, Tracy.” “You can’t go back to school yet, Tracy.” Tracy just wants life to go back to normal, but at this rate, nothing will ever be the same as before. Join Tracy as she learns that she is not alone on this journey and there is hope. Tracy and the Heroes in Blue is the honest story of one girl’s journey to discovering that you can always find joy, even when life feels far from normal.
