Synopsis

Nana, What's Cancer? A Healing Conversation Between Grandmother and Granddaughter by Beverlye Hyman-Fead, Tess Hamermesh

A grandmother lovingly invites her young granddaughter to ask questions about cancer, and through medically accurate yet sensitive information ultimately helps the child grasp the nature of serious illness, love and support, and the power of hope. The age-appropriate tone, language for children helps adults explain cancer. Each chapter begins with a question that factually addresses medical information, including: What causes cancer? Can you catch cancer? Can anyone get cancer? When you have cancer, do you have to stay in bed? Can you get cancer when you already have another disease? Is it okay to feel sad when someone you love has cancer? Why are some cancers worse than others? Do animals ever get cancer? Is there anything else we can do to stop cancer? Do children get cancer, too? What's important to remember about cancer? It also includes resources and glossary.
