About this title


Each year 10.9 million people worldwide are diagnosed with cancer. It is estimated that one out of three people will have cancer in their lifetimes and that about one in six persons will die of it. For children younger than 15 years old, cancer is the second leading cause of death after accidents. Cancer & Kids takes on this frightening topic with age-appropriate language, explaining what cancer is, how you get it, how you can treat it, and more. The book covers the many types of cancer and who is most likely to get them, explains how some people have a genetic predisposition to cancer, and describes how lifestyle can affect your chances of getting this disease. Cancer & Kids uses a variety of educational approaches to illustrate hard-to-grasp explanations: -- Simple and concise explanations make complicated health topics easy enough for young readers to understand. -- Color photographs and illustrations show how cancer affects the body and how cancer treatments work. -- A real-life story offers courage and hope from a kid who faced cancer. -- Information on the latest research and medical advancements, as well as information on alternative treatments and preventative measures, makes the book current. -- Ask the Doctor sections connect a licensed health practitioner with children s real questions about cancer. -- Inside/Outside perspectives allow children to understand what s going on inside the body when cancer happens, while seeing how that looks on the outside as well. -- Boxed glossary words on every page define unfamiliar terms for kids. -- Did You Know? boxes round out readers information on the various topics. -- Just the Facts boxes summarize each chapter in easily understood, bite-size packages. -- A Find Out More section directs readers to additional resources found on the Internet. -- A learning map helps readers organize new information. Cancer & Kids helps take away the mystery of a dreaded disease and offers hope and inspiration as well.
