The cancer that wouldn't go away: a story for kids about metastatic cancer

by Field, Hadassa

Hadassa Field, United States of America, 2013

This picture book is aimed at children aged from about 4 to 8 years of age, but would probably be useful for older children too. It was written by Hadassa Field after her sister struggled to find picture books to help her explain her advanced cancer to her children. It explains the concepts of uncertainty and the need for patience when faced with advanced or metastatic cancer. Includes famliar situations like talking to friends, grandma helping with childcare, noticing parents' feelings, and the joy of a new pet. Includes excellent notes specifically for parents, therapists and educators, on talking to children whose parent has had a diagnosis of advanced cancer, and how they might use the book.
