THERE'S NO PLACE LIKE HOPE:

Type: 
Book
Description: 

This little book, There's No Place Like Hope, was a huge comfort to me. It was written by a health care provider who was stricken with cancer and it is written in short easy to read sections. The humor in it will only be recognized by those of us in the trenches. I have given it to many friends who have faced the same diagnosis I did and some made it to the other side and some lost the battle. I have to think that this small book maybe brought a smile to their face while they were reading it.

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.
