Overview

Complete with a glossary, Our Family Has Cancer, Too! offers an opportunity for you and your family to learn and share feelings with each other about cancer and to answer the questions most kids have: What is cancer? What changes will happen to our family? What are the treatments like? How long will it take to get through the cancer experience? What do I tell my friends? But most importantly, Our Family Has Cancer, Too! teaches you how to laugh together! Christine Clifford, author of Not Now...I'm Having a No Hair Day, the first book to offer hope and humor to cancer patients, has broken new ground once again with Our Family Has Cancer, Too! With the help and insight of her son, Tim, Christine has explored the issues facing families when cancer becomes a part of life.

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Dr. Judy Rowen
When the author underwent treatment for breast cancer, she felt supported by friends and family. One thing was missing, however-humor. She needed a good laugh! This book is aimed at children who are struggling with cancer in their family. With cartoons by Lindstrom (who draws a syndicated strip as well), Clifford tells her story from the perspective of her sons. Despite tears and fears, funny things still happen. Clifford gives young kids permission to cry and laugh. Questions for family discussion are included. This slim volume would make a good companion gift along with Not now...I'm having a No Hair Day, which tells Clifford's story from the adult point of view (with many of the same cartoons and anecdotes).
