					Author Launches “Read2KickCancer” Campaign: 50% of Book Proceeds will be
Donated to the American Association for Cancer Research

Young-adult book author Raymond C. Perkins, Jr., whose son battled and
survived a malignant brain tumor at 5 years of age, is launching the
“Read2KickCancer” campaign that will provide funds to cancer research
through dollars received from book purchases.

Derby Line, Vermont, November 05, 2012 -- Fifty-percent of the proceeds
from Perkins’ books in the B.T. and Jimmy Adventure Series, “The Mystery
of the Silver Statue,” and his newest addition to the series, “The
Mystery of the Brick Kingdom,” will be donated to the American
Association for Cancer Research, the world’s first and largest
professional organization dedicated to advancing cancer research and its
mission to prevent and cure cancer.

“The American Association for Cancer Research is grateful to Mr. Perkins
for his support of cancer research. We applaud him for utilizing his
talents in such a way as to inspire and educate young readers about the
challenges faced by those affected by cancer, something near and dear to
his heart,” wrote the AACR.

“The Mystery of the Silver Statue,” published in February 2010, and “The
Mystery of the Brick Kingdom,” due to be released on October 1, 2012,
follows the exploits of a teenage detective who beats cancer, but
struggles with the effects of surgery and radiation treatments.

With a mixture of action, adventure, and history, the books chronicle the
adventures of B.T., the main character, and Jimmy, his partner, while
providing inspirational stories about facing adversity and overcoming
life’s struggles.

One reader’s quote says it all: “Brings tears to my eyes, Ray. I am so
proud of you, your family, and your accomplishments. What an inspiration
you are to many, as you poignantly touch upon the inner struggles in life
in such a way that all who read these books are not even realizing that
they will have a lasting effect on all who read them. Anxiously awaiting
your next book. Love to you all.”

Embark on the journey of the B.T. and Jimmy Adventure Series, and know
the good your purchase will do, as half of the proceeds benefit the fight
against one of the world’s most insidious diseases — cancer. Cancer
research has been, and continues to be, the path to finding new and
alternative ways to prevent and cure cancer, a disease that will touch
the lives of one in two men and one in three women. Approximately 1.64
million Americans will be diagnosed with cancer and about 577,190 will
die of the disease in 2012 alone.

Join the fight and “Read2KickCancer!”
