Cancer Support

The Macmillan Cancer Information and Support Service Centre (MCISC) service for parents diagnosed with advanced cancer have collated a group of resources to help parents talk with their children about their diagnosis.

No Matter What - book cover
As big as it gets - book cover
The Secret C
A Monster Calls - book cover
How to Talk: so kids will listen and listen so kids will talk
Sad Book - book cover
When your mum or dad has cancer - book cover

Starting the discussion with children may be too difficult for some parents and this can be when health professionals can help support parents to find the best approach and help the parent practice and think about questions that may be asked so they have some degree of preparedness.


These resources created by MCISC will provide information and support in talking with children for anyone affected by cancer, preparing children for loss.
