Resources to Help Share a Parent or Loved Ones’ Cancer Diagnosis with a Child

You may be stressed about revealing your cancer diagnosis to your child or children.

Children love stories and these often provide parents with a means of broaching tricky subjects and so the ‘The Secret Warrior’ book was especially written for CANSA TLC, by creative writer and social worker, Sally Ann Carter.

We understand that sharing a cancer diagnosis with a child can be heart breaking and confusing. Parents want to protect their children from hardship and grief, but it’s also important to be open about what is happening in the family and to help the child cope.

This illustrated and colourful booklet will help make this a little easier for parents.
