FIRST AID FOR PATIENTS WITH CANCER
Cancer, also known as malignancy, is not just one disease but a collection of diseases. These conditions often include a disruption in physical and mental wellbeing, side effects from treatment, painful procedures, financial burden, and difficult decision making.
Aside from ensuring that the first aid kit is well stocked, the key to administering first aid to cancer patients is to understand the specialized skills and items needed to manage fear, anxiety, and depression; adverse effects of cancer or chemotherapy; and emergency situations that require cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR).

Mommy Lost Her Boob
Mommy Lost Her Boob is a light hearted answer to a very tough question. “Mommy what is cancer?” When I got that call saying I was diagnosed with cancer, I had no idea how I was going to tell my mom or my daughter. My daughter was 6 at the time and I didn’t know what to say. I wondered how she would take all of this? Will she be afraid of me? I had all these questions I could only imagine the questions Deja would have. Then I remembered my mom telling me just answer what she asks. “Mommy is it coming back?” was asked many times and it was the question that inspired this book. Deja and I love being able to share a part of the journey with you and we hope it helps you answer some of those tough questions floating in your little ones beautiful mind.
