Book Proceeds Help Cancer Patients at Phoenix Children's Hospital

Best selling author and real estate developer, Ken McElroy dedicates latest book and donates his book proceeds to the McKenzie Monks Foundation to help

children cope with their cancer treatments.

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz., Sept. 19 /PRNewswire/ -- Phoenix Children's Hospital cancer patients will benefit from proceeds of Ken McElroy's recently published book: Rich Dad's Advisors The ABC's of Property Management. (

McKenzie Monks made a deep and lasting impression on Ken McElroy as the little three year old girl and her family fought a courageous battle with a relentless disease. For 11 months, McKenzie Monks underwent painful cancer treatments and surgeries. McKenzie's family was with her through every treatment and surgery. Despite all medical efforts, McKenzie lost her battle against cancer just six weeks shy of her fifth birthday.

Ken McElroy wanted to do something to help ease the suffering of these young patients.

McKenzie's family established the McKenzie Monks Foundation to sponsor and provide toy rooms with games, books, movies, gifts and objects of comfort and entertainment at oncology departments and hospitals to help children endure and cope with the long hours of cancer treatments.

McElroy knew that donating to the Foundation would be the most direct route to help kids. A bestselling author, and co-principal of MC Companies (, a real estate development, management and investment company, Ken McElroy decided to dedicate and donate his proceeds from his most recent book: Rich Dad's Advisors The ABC's of Property Management to the Foundation.

McElroy's first book, written in 2004, Rich Dad's Advisors The ABC's of Real Estate Investing is still a best seller. And he hopes his latest book will share the same level of success. He wrote the book about property management to help others understand the amount of time and effort it takes to properly manage investment property. The book dispenses invaluable tools on what pitfalls to look out for while making savvy management choices.

Readers will learn:

-- When to manage a property or hire someone else to do it

-- How to implement the right systems and structures for investment

-- How to manage cashflow and understanding the condition of your

property's market

-- How to find a good property manager (and avoid the bad ones)

-- How to assemble a superior management team

McKenzie's family created "Kenzie Kases," small suitcases filled with CD's, DVD's, coloring books, bears, blankets, toys and Game Boy's, etc. Kenzie Kases are given to each child upon learning that they have cancer. Denise Monks, McKenzie's mom said, "McKenzie pulled a little rolling suitcase behind her each time she went for her cancer treatments." Filled with toys, books and games to keep her occupied during the long and often painful treatments, McKenzie's suitcase was the inspiration for the "Kenzie Kases."
