Explaining to kids: Mammy has breast cancer (book) by Yvonne Crawley
After being diagnosed with breast cancer, I had to explain to my young children in a simple way what was happening. While I didn't want to frighten them, I wanted to keep them in the loop. I feel when you are honest everything is more bearable. For them this just became another event in their lives.
