Ages 4 to 8 years. You may be thinking, "Why do children need to learn about breast cancer?" Well, that's because this disease can strike women at any age, including in their forties, thirties, and even twenties. Women in this age group have young children whose lives are strongly impacted by this disease. Furthermore, studies show that kids may actually suffer clinical depression and other emotional problems when a mother is diagnosed with breast cancer. Recent online and journal articles show that parents with cancer need to figure out how to talk to their children about the disease, and that behavioral and emotional problems occur in families of women with breast cancer. This impact can be minimised with proper education for children. Metu and Lee Learn About Breast Cancer is a book for children five and up that will help them understand this disease and how it may affect the adult women in their lives.
