The Secret C: Straight Talking About Cancer
By Julie Stokes
To help people live better with cancer, we donate $1000 to the American Cancer Society every month.
When a family member is diagnosed with cancer, it can be difficult explaining to children what cancer is and how it will affect the family. The Secret C: Straight Talking About Cancer aims to support families with this task and uses illustrations and straightforward language to give a basic explanation of what cancer is, the treatments involved, and how it might affect the person living with cancer. Feelings are also addressed and reassured. The book also reinforces the importance of trying to keep as close to the usual family routines as possible and still being able to laugh and have fun.
The book is aimed at children 7-10 years old.
Why do people living with cancer recommend this product?
"Wonderful book, which we've been giving to families with children when someone they know has cancer. It can be read to the child or you can use the pictures for children that are a bit younger then the age group the text is aimed at. Very useful tool when dealing with the topic of cancer for children."
