A children’s book to help parents explain cancer to kids

One morning Kai’s dad was driving him to school and Kai asked, “why out of all the mummy’s in the world does this have to happen to my mum?” This was the impossible question that inspired ‘Why My Mummy?’, a book that shares Kai’s experience of his Mother’s cancer.

Donna wrote the book from Kai’s perspective in the hope that it would help other parent’s talk to their kids about terminal illness.

This beautiful book is the first of many of a series that Donna intends to write to support families at different stages on the cancer journey.
