The Cancer Center of Santa Barbara is hosting a reading of "Nana, What's Cancer?"
The book, written by a local author, Beverlye Hyman Fead and her 11-year-old granddaughter, Tessa Mae Hamermesh, tackles the tough questions about cancer, in a kid-friendly but honest way.
In the book, Hamermesh, who has lost three other grandparents to cancer, asks the questions and Fead, a stage IV cancer survivor, provides honest answers that are designed to ease children's fears by offering them comforting and factual information in a sensitive way.
It was published by the American Cancer Society and is a recipient of the prestigious Mom's Choice Award.
Children and families are encouraged to attend this free event Saturday, February 20, at the Cancer Center of Santa Barbara at 1:30 in the Cancer Resource Library.
A Q&A session and book signing will follow the reading.
The first 30 people to RSVP will receive a free copy of the book.
Contact the Cancer Center of Santa Barbara at (805) 898-2116 or firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve your seat.
