The Ellie Project is a special alphabet book written and illustrated by a loving father to his two-year old daughter, while he was battling for his life. Andrew B. Heard author of A Gray Faith was diagnosed with his second battle with cancer at the ripe age of twenty-nine. Andrew was eighteen when he was first diagnosed with Hodgkins Lymphoma. The cancer came back eleven years later as lung cancer. He fought hard for 10 months and then went to be with the Lord July 26, 2013. During his battle Andrew completed two books. A Gray Faith was published a month before he passed away. He also spent his time finding ways to connect with his two year old daughter, Ellie, through drawing animals (her favorite) and with each drawing writing her a love note about character qualities he believed were important for her to learn in life. Out of this act of love developed The Ellie Project.
