I am teaming up with Jen, who writes at The Dinoia Family, and Sarah, who writes at Balancing Act, for a four part series in honor of National Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

Yesterday, I wrote about how to help a parent who is undergoing cancer treatment.
Today, Sarah is writing about how to talk to young children about cancer.
Tomorrow, Jen is sharing what to say – and what not to say – to a person newly diagnosed with cancer.
Thursday, I am sharing an interview with the Executive Direction of Cleaning for a Reason.

Please stop by Sarah’s site today for ideas on how to talk to young children about cancer, and leave your own suggestions if you have experience.

If you have resources (articles, websites, etc.) that would be beneficial for families who are experiencing a serious illness, please leave them in the comments. I’m going to present a list of resources tomorrow.
