Ollie Tibbles: The Boy Who Became a Train
By Debi Tibbles
“What do you want to be when you grow up?”
“I’m going to be a train.”
I laughed. “You mean you want to be a train driver, right?”
“No.” Ollie put his hands on his hips. “I want to be a train, silly, and I’m going to be someday.”
Debi’s happy life as a stay-at-home mum of three began to change the morning the elementary school secretary called. Her five-year-old had a headache. When he had another and another, each progressively worse, Debi’s fear set in. Something in the doctor’s kind eyes told her, Prepare yourself. This child is in danger.
When medical tests revealed a highly malignant, fast-moving cancer in Ollie’s brain and spine, Debi’s world fell apart. Her fun-loving child was about to endure the most excruciating days of his life, and she was about to encounter the most profound lessons of hers.
Ollie Tibbles: The Boy Who Became a Train is a journey down the track of every parent’s nightmare. It is a story of love, tragic loss, and hope—and the true miracle of a young boy’s wish come true.
