Our Mom is Getting Better
Our Mom is Getting Better by Alex Silver
Book DescriptionCancer directly affects millions of survivors worldwide each year, along with their loved ones. Children, often emotionally involved in a parent's cancer experience, may have concerns yet may not know how to help. When children participate in the recovery process, they - and the family as a whole - can also begin to heal.This book, and its companion, ""Our Dad Is Getting Better"", reflect the love, honesty, and support these parents were able to provide to their kids not only during cancer treatment, but in the unexpected ""New Normal"" life after treatment.This story starts as Mum is ending ""active treatment"" and concludes a year later when the family participates together in a fundraising walk. This topic is important because it introduces readers to a phase of survivorship that often goes unaddressed but is critical to a family's well being. It explains the parent's ongoing need for medical checkups, adequate rest and exercise, and good nutrition to help in recovery. It focuses on what survivors and their families need to hear when treatment ends: a message of hope and healing. It contains bright and colourful illustrations by children, for children, which genuinely communicate the message in an age-appropriate way.
