Talking with children
about cancer

If you need to tell a child about your cancer diagnosis, ask for Simple Talks for Tough Times by Marcia Carlson, social worker at Virginia Piper Cancer Institute – Unity Hospital and the Mercy Cancer Center. The book is available at no cost.

The Virginia Piper Cancer Institute - Mercy Hospital offers all of the services of comprehensive cancer care including risk assessment and genetics counseling, cancer screening, diagnostic and interventional radiology, and treatment by surgery, radiation therapy and medical oncology.
