Hanneke Karthaus wrote en illustrated this dutch picture book about brest cancer for young children. Even for them its very dramatically if mama is getting severely sick. The story capitalizes on the experiences of children and learns them to be aware of their own feelings, that even can be nice sometimes like the icecream in the hospital. It is also a tool for parents to talk about brestcancer with a very young child.
