Cancer can be difficult to explain or talk about to a child. Sharing stories about other children who's living with cancer or other children who's friend or family member has cancer can help support the child.
When someone a child loves dies it can be very difficult for them to understand what has happened. Whether they have lost a parent, grandparent, sibling, friend or pet, the emotions may be overwhelming. Sharing a story about someone else dying can help to explain things in a less frightening way, and cuddling up with a book can be very comforting for both grown-up and child.
