My Mom Looks Like a Turtle

Yvette VanDerBrink brings a “kid-friendly” way for families, medical personnel, and teachers to talk to kids about Cancer. This book takes you on the journey, from the eyes of a child, through breast cancer and her Mom’s treatment. It uses humor to help parents and caregivers talk with children about Cancer, and makes it easier for them to understand.

My son is 8 years old and I have just completed my treatment for breast cancer.

He has struggled to come to terms with it all and there seems so little support for children thanks to you and your daughter for writing the book.
