When Mommy Got Cancer – Creating JOY Together

by Karen Garcia - Illustrated by Lisa J. Michaels
ISBN 978-0-9842831-9-4

"This book is such a beautiful expression of the special bond Karen and her daughter had, and still do thanks to all the work Karen put into making sure the parental bond would remain strong long after her death. This book is perfect for parents with advanced cancer who are trying to find a way to initiate conversation with their young children about their prognosis, yet still be able to maintain hope and joy in their family during the terminal stages of cancer."
~ Farya Phillips
