Boy Reads Book Written By Mum With Cancer That 'Will Never Go Away' In Emotional Video
M y relationship to cancer is professional but also personal, such that the terms used to characterise it doctor, oncologist, investigator can be added to, unhappily, by the words nephew, grandson, friend and son. With the publication of my novel This Living and Immortal Thing, this secret is less zealously held and even to be publicised. Perhaps it will not matter. The list is personal, not exhaustive. Some of them I read as an oncologist, some as an interested bystander, and some with the pathos and pain of that nephew, grandson, friend and son. The Immortal Tale of Henrietta Lacks by Rebecca Skloot I was halfway through my novel when I discovered to my horror that this book was coming out. Lacks is an important woman in cancer history and features in my book, albeit figuratively.
October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. My mother is a breast cancer survivor so this is a topic dear to my heart. What am I missing? Thanks for your help! Told through animal characters, a young hedgehog gets sick and his mother seeks the white wolf for help.

Books for children who have cancer
A mother with terminal cancer wrote a book to explain the condition to her son - and captured the moment he read it out loud to her in an emotional video. Donna Penny, 42, from Australia, was diagnosed with breast cancer seven years ago. She wrote 'Why My Mummy? Penny hopes the book, that she has been crowdfunding to get published , will also help other families discuss life-threatening illnesses with children. Penny said she explored both the emotional and physical journey that cancer brings to each family in the book. She initially found a lump in her breast when she was 30 years old, but said at the time a mammogram didn't show up anything.
How would you explain cancer to a child? What is cancer? Why do I have to stay in hospital? One of the best ways for kids to understand new ideas is through reading about them. This storybook follows the story of a brave hare on her journey to overcome illness. The hare goes on a journey that tests her strength and courage, all accompanied by colourful illustrations.
