What to tell children

Hi. My brother age 41 just underwent the neck resection procedure for head/neck cancer biopsies after earlier removal of a malignant lymph node in his neck. He is awaiting biopsy results at this time to determine what type of radiation, chemo may be involved in future treatment. He has children ranging in age from 7 to 11. They know their dad is pretty sick. I live in another state. My brother asked that I wait and visit later when I may be more helpful to him and family during future treatment. (My sister in law's relatives live nearby and are helping now.) What are good examples of supportive messages I can send to my nieces and nephews through email and letters to help cheer them and also give them ideas of ways they can be helpful to their dad and mom during this time?
