Folks at East Tennessee Children's Hospital rolled out the red carpet on Thursday. They held a book signing for a new book called "East Tennessee From A to Z."
A 12-year-old patient wrote the book, while current and former patients did the illustrations.
Black McCoy of Independent Insurance Consultants has sponsored the book, meaning the hospital will get all proceeds from book sales. The hospital says the money is very important for making children feel welcome in a hospital.
"We need new things like for the clinic we're in now, the oncology clinic, artwork and things for the kids and activities for them to do to make it a little easier for them to be in a hospital," said Erica Estep with ETCH.
McCoy's son Kyan is a former patient of the hospital. You can purchase the book on the East Tennessee Children's Hospital website or in their gift shop.
