Created with the advice of cancer specialists and families affected by cancer, this set of four illustrated booklets will help explain cancer to children aged seven to 11, clearly and sensitively.
The booklets are full of advice and information – from ideas for dealing with feelings to simple explanations about what cancer is and the different types of treatments. They include contributions from children who have been in a similar situation, aiming to help reassure young readers that they're not alone.
