Cancer is bad news. It's frightening to even think about it. Now think how frightening it would be for your children to know you have cancer. How do you tell them? How do you deal with the trauma and the pain? How do you prepare for the emotional and psychological upheaval a family endures when a parent has cancer?
Peter Van Dernoot has gathered the real-life stories and experiences of over twenty parents who have been diagnosed with cancer. They share their deepest fears and their highest hopes as they provide the reader with invaluable advice, guidance and inspiration. Now including all-new stories from parents and advice from professional counselors, this groundbreaking book is a very special gift from families affected by cancer to families affected by cancer.
