Mummy's Naughty Knot
Breast cancer is now the most common cancer in the UK. Each year more than 44,000 women are diagnosed with breast cancer, thats more than 100 women a day.
Around 430,000 women are diagnosed with breast cancer in the European Union every year. Worldwide, more than a million women are diagnosed with breast cancer every year.
Helen and Caitlin Wray share their approach of living through breast cancer as a young family in this easy to read and easy to use short book. They encourage breast cancer sufferers to communicate their illness honestly with their children and make an unbearable experience more bearable.
Helen Wray is a breast cancer survivor. She was diagnosed with breast cancer and faced one of the most difficult tasks a mother can face: to explain the horrors ahead in her fight against cancer.
"Caitlin was a very bright three year old when I was diagnosed. I didnt want her to be frightened by what was happening to me.
Explaining hair loss was okay she pulled my hair out and accepted her baldy mum with no qualms. The mastectomy was another matter.
Caitlin, like most children, loves stories so I wrote a little book to explain how I would lose the boob. Caitlin added her own words and gave her opinions on the pictures. This is the result.
It helped me and Caitlin; I hope it helps you and yours."
Mummy's Naughty Knot has proved to be a very comforting source of inspiration for other women diagnosed with breast cancer. Even before it went to print, Helen received countless orders for this book. Although only 15 pages long, it is fully and charmingly illustrated by Helen herself.
