Finding Chika OverviewIn Mitch Albom's memoir, Finding Chika, Albom tells the story of Medjerda “Chika” Jeune, a Haitian orphan who died at age seven of a brain tumor. Hoping that doctors in America could cure Chika, Albom, who managed the orphanage in Haiti, and his wife, Janine, brought Chika to live with them. Albom describes how Chika and the childless Alboms became a family over the course of the two years that Chika spent living with them while she fought the tumor. Themes in the memoir include Albom’s use of writing in the grieving process, the lessons Albom learned from Chika, and the definition of a family.
