My Mum Has Breast Cancer
A Family's Cancer JourneyBook - 2006
As cancer appears more evident in the community today, young children are becoming more exposed to cancer through either knowing someone they love having the disease, or perhaps a friend or family member. This new publication provides families a guide and opens areas of discussion about cancer, its treatment and the heroes who work in the medical field. Telling a child a parent or loved one has cancer is one of the hardest parts of the journey. When Lisa Sewards, a wife and mother, was diagnosed with Breast Cancer, she and her husband were unable to find a suitable children's story book to explain the illness and its treatment to their young children. Lisa began a journal, and with the help of her young son this story has evolved into a self published children's story book as seen through the eyes of a 7-year-old boy.The book aims to assist parents, grandparents, carers, teachers in explaining the Cancer journey to children in an informative and entertaining way. It offers explanations of tricky medical terms, cancer treatments, medical personnel, and helpful hints for family and friends.
