When Nancy Reagan comes to school, routine plays hooky. In fact, you could say the whole place goes to the beauty parlor.

I knew I had to stay strong. --from the diary of Leonard Mendoza Jr. There's a community in Los Angeles undefined by geographic or ethnic lines where 6-year-olds talk to nurses about spinal taps, where children die almost every day. Its residents are the cancer patients at Childrens Hospital and their families.
