“Mommy, what’s cancer?” Author Eva Grayzel on Cancer S.O.S., Monday, April 23rd at 2:00 p.m. EST on www.W4WN.com

My guest this week knows all about talking to kids about a cancer diagnosis–whether it’s a parent or sibling with cancer, or the child his/herself who is the patient. “Mommy, what’s cancer?” Thirteen years ago, Eva Grayzel was that mom being asked that question by her children ages 5 and 7, after her own late-stage cancer diagnosis. The answer has to be thoughtful and appropriate depending on the child’s age and situation. Eva is the author of You Are Not Alone: Families Touched by Cancer and Mr. C Plays Hide & Seek. This incredible woman writes books to help children understand life after a cancer diagnosis has affected their life and family.
