(Hudson, WY) – 11-year-old Triton Fritz wants “The Brave Adventures of Triton Tough” in as many children’s hospitals, clinics and schools as possible.
The graphic novel is based on the true story of his own journey of becoming the superhero Triton Tough and battling the “Cancer Monster.”
Triton was first diagnosed with the rare cancer Rhabdomyosarcoma in 2016 when he was 6-years-old. A year later the idea to write a book was born. It was written and illustrated by his aunts Jackie and Julia Dorothy, respectively.
Triton has already donated one to each classroom at his school, Baldwin Creek Elementary, and to the Primary Children’s Hospital in Utah.
“He’s really excited about it
[the book],” shared his mom Jessica. “He likes the fact that he gets to see it happen.”
Not only does it serve as an inspirational book for those who are battling cancer and their loved ones, but it is also educational for those who haven’t dealt with cancer.
“It’s a fun, educational book,” she continued. “It’s brightly colored and easy for kids, but it’s also great for all ages.”
Purchasing the book helps Triton donate copies to children’s hospitals, clinics and schools.
In December of 2021, Triton’s doctors decided there was nothing left to do for him, his family shared on the Triton Tough Facebook page.
“He is currently continuing to enjoy every single day that he has been blessed with.”
Triton has an Amazon Wishlist called the “Adventure List of Excitement,” which is filled with fun and cozy items he has picked out. You can check out and order from his wishlist here.
