Summary, etc.:
"When Sara Olsher was diagnosed with cancer at the age of 34, her first thought was how to tell her six-year-old daughter without scaring her. Cancer Party! is the result of that conversation and experience. It is the book Sara wished she could have snuggled up on the couch and read with her child. Cancer Party! is a little bit science, a little bit silly, and a lot straightforward. Keeping it simple, Cancer Party! uses bright illustrations to show how cells divide, work, and what happens when a cell gets confused and turns into cancer. Aimed at families with kids ages 4 to 10, Cancer Party! helps families address the physical impact cancer treatment has on a patient and their child, helps kids understand what to expect, and assures them that cancer isn't their fault. 'But every once in awhile, one of the cells forgets what its job is. It can't remember what to do! It's so confused. And since it doesn't know what else to do, it decides to have a PARTY.' Cancer Party! is the perfect book for families that want to explain what cancer actually is, and applies to mothers, fathers, grandparents, and many types of cancer, including breast cancer, colon cancer, blood cancers such as leukemia, and bone cancers. It aims to empower kids with knowledge, which is proven to help kids through traumatic situations."--Publisher description.
