The Great Katie Kate Tackles Questions About Cancer by M. Maitland DeLand

The great Katie Kate takes on the Worry Wombat as she teaches a young girl about treating cancer. When Dr. Demarco explains to Suzy that she might have cancer, the young girl begins to worry. Just then, the Great Katie Kate zooms in to ease Suzy's mind and help her stare down the Worry Wombat. She takes Suzy on a magical tour through the hospital and explains what cancer is all about and, more important, how it is treated. As Suzy learns more about her condition, she learns to ask questions and even to smile, which makes the Worry Wombat disappear. This superhero saga provides an entertaining and indispensable tool for parents and medical professionals who are seeking a positive way to set young cancer patients on the road to recovery by helping them deal with their fears. With Katie Kate coming to the rescue, children with cancer have a friend they can trust.

I ordered this book for my niece(age 6) who was recently diagnosed with Osteosarcoma(a form of bone cancer).  It was actually perfect for her and her sister, because the main character in the book has a bump on the side of her leg that turns out to be a tumor.  Which is exactly what happened with my niece.  It explains the different tests and treatments that she will have to go through in a kid friendly way.  It also talks about how asking a lot of questions can make the journey less scary.  The more you know and learn, the less worried you are, and that will make the "Worry Wombat" go away.  It was also beneficial to my other nieces and nephews who are all under the age of 12 understand what will be happening in the coming months.
