I find your recent posts very moving. I am sending you a link to a recent video posted on that was made by a mom with cancer. She was trying to leave memories for her children.

Thanks so much for your blog. Reading it helps me support a friend dealing with stage 4 prostate cancer. I consider him a healthy survivor.


Hi, I was wondering if you have any used Becky and the worry cup.My book when a parent has cancer didn't come with the companion book. I hadn't read your book because I thought we were over this. I was diagnosed with uterine and bladder cancer. Had surgery radiation then major surgery and chemo. Now I set to do a PETscan of lungs to see if it has metastasized. Our daughter is 7y/o now. Now I am reading your book and I didn't realize it never had the Becky book. Please advise. Thanks for your blog and book.

Dear Cindy,
So sorry to hear about the ongoing medical challenges. I do hope you find the bookset useful in helping your young daughter.

Please email me at harpham [at] and I'll help you get a copy of the children's book, Becky and the Worry Cup. Unfortunately HarperCollins doesn't sell the children's book separately.

You might want to look at The Hope Tree, too, an illustrated book for younger children whose parent has cancer. I co-authored it with Laura Numeroff (she wrote If You Give a Mouse a Cookie). It is sold in paperback by Komen for the Cure. Except for the first-page mention of breast cancer, the entire book is about dealing with a parent with any type of cancer.

HANG IN THERE. With hope, Wendy
