About this item
Sometimes people we love get sick with cancer. This beautifully illustrated short story will help children identify important people in their lives, explain cancer and possible outcomes, discuss feelings and needs, and encourage kids to remember special moments. Simple, honest, and straight-forward, it is tailored to work with differing children's needs. Be it initially introducing the concept of cancer or helping a child who has lost someone to cancer, Special Person Battles Cancer gives caregivers a gentle and direct way to discuss hard topics. Stages and topics are broken down by pages so readers can tackle topics as needed; illustrations are designed to apply to almost any age, gender, race, background, nationality, or belief system. The ending asks children and caregivers alike to take the time to share significant memories. And in order to help keep more Special Person's in our lives longer, a portion of profits will be donated to aid in the fight against cancer.
