A 7-year-old has truly shown us the power of words with The Chocolate Bar Book, a book he wrote to raise money for his best friend who’s sick.
Dylan Siegel wrote the book to raise money for his friend Jonah who has a rare liver disease with no cure. He has already raised over $750,000 as people in 50 states and 42 countries have been purchasing The Chocolate Bar Book to help out Jonah.
Jonah has Glycogen Storage Disease Type 1b which causes dangerously low blood sugar and requires him to be fed every few hours through a feeding tube in his stomach.
Every penny that The Chocolate Bar Book makes is going towards finding a cure for the disease which is apparently near to being reached.
