How does a mother tell a daughter she has breast cancer?
How can a child understand what a mastectomy and reconstruction are all about?
After Nancy Reuben Greenfield was diagnosed with breast cancer, she searched for answers to these questions. Out of her experience, she created When Mommy Had a Mastectomy, a book for children that addresses these questions in a simple, clear manner.
When Mommy Had a Mastectomy, with gentle text and soft illustrations, lovingly helps parents and children through the trauma of breast cancer, and the process of recovery. It's thoughtful approach to mothers who get sick and children who want to help makes it an invaluable resource for families.
