I am a 3 year bc survivor and have several kids books (to help cope with mom's breast cancer) that I no longer need and would love to give them to someone for free.  They're in brand new condition.  I read these to my 9 year old son back then and it helped explain things simply for him (and for me!).  These are great for kids 10 years and younger.

1)  Mom Goes to War (Irene Aparici Martin)

2) When Your Mom Has Cancer (Maryann Makekau)

3) The Kids' Guide to Mommy's Breast Cancer

My apologies if it looks awkward to post this here.  I wasn't sure and I really thought someone would love to have these to discuss with their children after diagnosis as it helped me.

Stay strong, stay positive.

Take ONLY one day at a time.

You will get through this. 

Much love!!!!  xoxo

Not sure if you would be willing to send to Canada, but I would love them! I have 9 year old twin boys and am struggling on how to tell them, and was looking for books that could assist!

PM me if you would like
