Thankfully the loss of a child from any cause is very rare. That said, brain tumours are one of the more common forms of childhood cancers with significant morbidity and mortality rates. Treatments can be lengthy, brutal, and with a huge amount of emotional fallout for the patient, their extended family, friends, and classmates. Siblings suffer immeasurably. Many children die due to either the tumour or complications of the treatments.

This book was born of the need to help those most affected by the sorrow of loss. It is structured to help children, particularly siblings but also friends, to remember the good times, rather than the bad, as a tool in order to assist a positive progression through the stages of grief.

Parents who have suffered loss, teachers, and parents of classmates will find this book helpful in dealing with children affected by the loss of a child dear to them from whatever cause. The book has a positive approach to the aftermath of loss and as such will appeal to anyone seeking to come to terms with such a loss, or to better understand and help your own loved ones.
