How to explain cancer to child?


Question from Rainbow: How do you explain to a child who has no knowledge of biology what cancer is?
Answers - Marisa Weiss, M.D. The answers to this question depends on the age of your child, and the personality of your child. There are many resources available to you at Breastcancer.org at the Resources section of the site, including books and audio tapes. Look inĀ Dealing With Breast Cancer Fears on the site.
