(Mount Laurel, NJ) -- A few years ago, Jarrod Skole of Mount Laurel, New Jersey was an average ten-year-old who enjoyed playing sports and hanging out with his friends. Then, he was diagnosed with bladder cancer. Jarrod found visualization helped him cope with the disease, which he says he knew nothing about when he was going through treatment.

imagine-bookwitf's Megan Lello recently spoke with Jarrod, now a 15-year-old high school freshman, about the book he's written with his father to help reach out to other kids who are battling cancer.

Listen to their conversation:

Jarrod's book can be purchased online.
