Whenever I see a copy of “The Year My Dad Went Bald” go out to a cancer care center it is great to make a connection with the directors and staff of the facilities. I am amazed at all of the great work they do to help families facing cancer. Cancer care centers are using innovative techniques like art therapy and other family activities to help kids (and parents) best deal with a cancer diagnosis. I am proud that TYMDWB has become a tool to help educate and assist. Barbara Goldberg of the Bear Essentials Support Group for Children at the Missouri Baptist Cancer Center in St. Louis was kind enough to write.
“The Year My Dad Went Bald” by Brian Kraft is a must read for families dealing with a diagnosis of cancer. It is a universal story of hope,
courage and inspiration. Told through the perspective of a young boy, it gracefully guides children through a scary and sometimes unpredictable situation with with, sensitivity and truth.
As the coordinator of a support group for children who have a loved one battling cancer, I have found “The Year My Dad Went Bald” to be a wonderful resource. I highly recommend this book to parents and professionals.”
Thanks to Barbara Goldberg and all those who strive to make life a little better for families in need.
