Tell family, friends and my community? Tell my kids? Don’t tell my kids?
According to the American Cancer Society; If children hear about a family member’s cancer from someone else, like a curious neighbor or a classmate, it can destroy the trust that parents have worked to build.
It was important for me to maintain the trust I had built with my kids so when I was diagnosed with breast cancer 14+ years ago my priority was to tell my children first. It was the most difficult conversation I had with my kids.
As I underwent treatments I realized I could have made my children’s lives easier had I been able to communicate with them what I might experience, like my hair falling out. After all I was just determined to be “normal”.
My journey began with experience to create a resource to help families discuss with their children what might happen to them as they live through the experience of a breast cancer diagnosis.
May this be an easy decision to make for your family by picking up a copy of Maggie Lives with Breast Cancer: A Family Tale of New Beginnings to start communicating with your children what you may experience.

Maggie did not disappoint. This book gets the balance right. It doesn’t shirk the difficult topics but they are introduced without drama or scare tactics. The book provides just the right amount of accurate information to explain what is going on and manage expectations. The illustrations are engaging, whimsical and gorgeous, the characters real and sympathetic.
