Cancer Battle Inspires Megan Allshouse Pomputius ’05, M’09 to Write Children’s Book

Still My Mommy

For Megan Allshouse Pomputius ’05, M’09, a battle with ovarian cancer became the inspiration for a children’s book. Her daughter was a toddler when Megan went through a grueling surgery and six rounds of chemotherapy. A fourth-grade teacher at St. Bernard School in Indiana, Megan said she wrote Still My Mommy “to explain that no matter how different Mommy looks when she goes through chemotherapy, she is still the same mommy to her children.” She hopes the book will help other mothers dealing with cancer. Still My Mommy has been featured in Catholic Accent and Conquer Magazine. Find more information through the publisher, Mascot Books.
