Heather writes this book through the lens of her own families experience as they walk through her husbands five year battle with lung cancer. This gives this book a very practical and personal feel. I love that she spans all of the ages - including the young adults that may be going through their own life upheaval as they start working full time or attending college. She has filled the books with specific helpful tips, trouble spots to watch for, and even examples of specific things a parent could say to help start or guide a conversation with their child.
This book covers a wide range of topics that may affect parents and their children. Chapters include: how to tell your children, how different ages and stages may react to having a parent with cancer, helping your children deal with side effects, getting your children to open up and talk about what they are feeling, dealing with grief, building a support system and facing terminal cancer. She also has a few chapters geared at single parents, adoptive parents, and unmarried couples.
Chapters in the book tend to be short and Heather does a great job organizing her information and using bullet points for ideas. This makes it an easy read for someone who is already feeling very overwhelmed.
I am very much looking forward to reading other books coming out in this series and am thankful that she is willing to share from her personal experience to help others!!
I was given a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review
Heather Erickson shares her experiences with her husband's cancer in an encouraging way. It's like sitting down and having a talk over a cup of coffee. Her faith, her experience, and her knowledge are a gift in a time of need.
Even if you don't have cancer in your family, you probably know someone who does. I picked up a ton of great ideas and suggestions that will help me reach out and encourage those who are hurting. Heather shares vulnerably the questions you wonder but are afraid to ask and gives tools to help when a family is facing cancer. Highly recommend!
