DAVENPORT, Iowa (KWQC) -Guest (and author) Dee Tipton and co-author Dona Bark share the story of Tipton’s beautiful granddaughter Libby Thulen who fought a difficult, 3-year battle against a rare form of leukemia. She died in June 2021, at the age of 12.

During a remission period, Libby had asked Tipton if they could write a book about her experience. The grandmother gave her a fresh journal and told her to write down all of her feelings, friends, places and emotions. Libby decided that she wanted her book to have a theme how hard it is to be a cocoon before becoming a beautiful Monarch which is a metaphor for facing end-of-life.
