About our Books

This book also focusses light on the fact that children need to be educated so that they know what the changes around them mean. Anticipating these changes with information is less stressful for these children. Studies have shown that children in homes touched by malignancies do better if they’re educated on the changes to anticipate. This eases there in anxiety . The study clearly show the children affected in homes touch by breast cancer can have increased psychosocial and detachment issues if they are not educated properly at the time that the family is dealing with this disease. It is Dr. Sachedina’s opinion this information can be extrapolated into other malignancies as well.It is the goal for the Metu and Lee book series, and the project, to help support all individuals by providing encouragement, information, and a tool to help open discussion with the youngest of the victims, the children.Over a decade has passed since the first installment in the series was published, and in that time, more Metu and Lee books have been produced, which focus on cancer as a whole as well as leukemia.

What is Metu and Lee?

The term mithu (me-tu) means “sweetie” for a boy, and mithulee (me-tu-lee) means sweetie for a girl. This is in the Indian language called Kutchi. Metu and Lee were derived from Dr. Sachedina’s desire to help the children of the world when their parent or children are diagnosed with medical problems. These characters were created to represent all the children of the world. Their purpose is to ease the difficulties for children facing these challenges. Therefore, these books is dedicated to the mithus and mithulees of the world.
