My Mum's Got Cancer is a picture book with a difference: it provides information and practical advice to children at a time when they are frightened and need reassurance. Author Dr Lucy Blunt is a clinical psychologist, mother and breast cancer survivor and knows first-hand the fears and experiences involved in telling children that Mummy has cancer. The book is honest, clear and often humorous and offers support and comfort to children and is an invaluable resource to their family, school and the wider community. Eloise Osborn is an 11 year old girl whose Mum wrote this book and she volunteered to do the illustrations so that other children can learn about what it is like to have a mother and family who go through breast cancer treatment.
