Local Books for Families Affected by Cancer
A diagnosis of cancer affects the entire family. Effective communication within a family is an essential element for families to navigate through the emotional impact of the diagnosis. Two books are available to open the avenues of communication: “Life Isn’t Always a Day at the Beach, A Book for All Children Whose Lives are Affected by Cancer” and “Life Isn’t Always a Breeze, A Supportive Journal for All Teens Whose Lives are Affected by Cancer.” Both books are designed to be used by the child/teen diagnosed with cancer, their siblings, and children/teens whose parent is diagnosed with cancer.
Children and teens benefit from having a means to express themselves and to have their personal journey through the cancer experience understood. Good communication is essential for families coping with a cancer diagnosis and the right resource can facilitate understanding and open the avenues of communication while strengthening coping skills. These user-friendly books are an excellent tool to facilitate meaningful interactions and supply the opportunity for growth and learning whether in a support group setting, a 1:1 counseling session, or in the home between family members.
