“When you learn a parent has cancer, your life changes. You’re scared of the future. You’re angry—at the disease, the doctors, even your parents. You may feel guilty, as if your parent’s cancer is a punishment for something you did (or didn’t) do. In this illustrated guide, children from the Kids Alive! support group talk about how cancer affects them and their families. You’ll learn how they feel, how they act, what they do to feel better, and what they’d do differently if they could. These kids understand how you feel. They’ve lived with parents who needed treatment. They understand just how scary cancer is and why it’s important to know someone’s lived through what you’re experiencing right now.”
