How do I talk to my child about cancer? Where do I begin? What is ‘too much’?
Talking about cancer with your children can be a tough topic to approach. Luckily, there are lots of great books that can help. Our Survivor Advisory Council Members put together a list of books about cancer for children (both children with cancer, and children with loved ones who have been diagnosed).
You can find all of these books in SURVIVEiT®’s Amazon Bookstore.
