Nielsen—who have created original short stories and modern-day fairy tales, based on the lives and dreams of children they have met who all have two things in common: they have very big hopes and dreams, and they are all cancer patients.

Quotes & Awards

  • “The…heroic adventures and profiles of the children who inspired them add up to a project that’s inspiring and moving on multiple levels.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “For a child with cancer, feeling like a hero can be a healing prospect. Through the Anything Can Be Project, children with cancer are given individual stories that reflect their dreams for heroic adventure—with each story being written, on order, by a bestselling author. Here, twenty-one of those stories are given narrations as diverse as the narrators who deliver them. Each narrator provides a delivery crafted to enhance the featured hero’s exploits: A mermaid accepts legs to bring her friends to safety, a youngster musters the courage to rescue her stuffed animal friends from a railroad track, and a would-be debutante fortuitously finds a note to a pirate crew. Listeners are also urged to take a look at the print book, which contains powerful photographs of real-life kids in the costumes of their heroes.”


  • “An inspiring anthology of well-told short stories.”

    School Library Journal

  • “The heroes of these tales are almost two dozen kids who are bravely battling cancer.”


  • “There’s quality here…the worthy purpose shines through.”

    Kirkus Reviews
