Beamer the dog was the star of the show Thursday at a children's book series launch event held at Inova Loudoun Hospital.
The four book series, entitled “The Beamer Book Series”, features Beamer, a gentle therapy dog, as the main character. In the books, Beamer is able to introduce many of the people he has met in the hospital while working as a therapy dog.
People attending the event were able to meet Beamer and the other main characters from the books.
The books were written by Cindy Chambers as a way to introduce kids to the wonderful doctors and hospital staff she has come to know as a board member at Inova Loudoun Hospital. She wanted to help kids reduce their fear of visiting a hospital.
Chambers is donating all of the profits from the books sales to charity, including Inova Loudoun Hospital.
“There is a wonderful feeling that this creates with a circle of giving,” Chambers said.
