Talking With My Treehouse Friends About Cancer

Book
Description: 

Talking With My Treehouse Friends About Cancer, Interactive Workbook Helps Kids Cope with News That Parents Have Cancer
The first activity book of its kind, Talking with My Treehouse Friends about Cancer, provides a creative, informative outlet for children during a difficult time

“It is hard to think of an occurrence more disruptive to family life than the diagnosis of cancer in a parent or grandparent,” says Peter R. van Dernoot, founder of The Children’s Treehouse Foundation, an organization committed to providing support in these difficult situations. In connection with his efforts to help children cope with such heart-wrenching news, Peter van Dernoot has created a unique diary and workbook, Talking with My Treehouse Friends about Cancer.

This full-color activity book includes a variety of fun projects such as drawing, coloring, pasting, and writing, to encourage children to articulate their new emotions and questions. By finishing statements such as “I remember how I found about the cancer,” and drawing “chemo stopping the cancer,” children learn how to cope with the disease and its impact. Additionally, the book informs about cancer in an easily understandable and unthreatening manner, using metaphors to explain cancer’s spread and the side effects kids may witness. A must for any family dealing with a parent’s or grandparent’s cancer, Talking with My Treehouse Friends about Cancer communicates with children in a language they understand.

Look Good Feel Better (for women facing cancer)

Type: 
Organization
Description: 

This is a TOTALLY FREE one time get together where professionals in your area get together and donate their time to help you learn about how to take care of your skin and tricks for looking your best during treatments. They will talk about different kinds of wigs and/or head treatments like scarfs and turbans. Believe me, if you lose your hair, and it is in cool weather, you will freeze. You lose a lot of heat through your head. A terry cloth turban is invaluable and inexpensive. They teach you so much about things you wouldn't eve think about probably.

Even if you don't wear make up there are things you need to know about taking care of your skin during treatments.

And you come away with a lot of free name brand skin care products that are good for you during treatments and also a lot of free name brand cosmetics which are all donated by the companies. Each person gets products that will work best with their skin types and cosmetics for their skin colours etc.

It truly makes you feel better! It is offered on a regular basis in Cancer Centres all over the US and Canada. It IS FREE but you do need to register to attend however.
