What is this cancer?

What is this cancer? Why do so many people get sick? Can I hug my sick grandmother? Do I always have to be nice to my sick sister?

When children are confronted with cancer, whether from a family member's illness or their own, they have many questions that a parent does not always know the answer to.

Dr Sarah Herlofsen answers them frankly and openly, and explains how a tumour develops and what is then happening in the body. She also suggests ways for parents to talk to their child about all the difficult topics related to the disease.
