If you are the parent of a child with cancer, the overwhelming multitude of questions, feelings, and associated anxieties are hard to contain. What caused the cancer? What can you as a parent do to help your child live through it? What is the future for your child?

In this insightful and thoughtful book, you will find information, hope, advice, and solace. Dr. John Poothullil expertly guides you to understand childhood cancer. He starts with his two new scientific theories to explain how the leading types of childhood cancers might occur, given that children have not lived long enough to develop the number of gene mutations that usually cause adult cancers.

You will learn how you as parents can care for your child with cancer with understanding and sensitivity, creating a loving home environment full of communal activities to reduce everyone’s stress and worry.

Most importantly, Dr. Poothullil explains why your child’s diet can be a key corollary element in controlling cancer along with the medical treatments. You will learn how a diet low in grains and grain-flour products slows cancer cell growth, giving your child’s immune system a better chance to contain it.

Valuable extra material in the book includes simple instructions to do gardening and cooking as calming activities to enjoy life for children with cancer. Three superbly illustrated short stories that parents can share with their child are also included.

“Well-written and well-explained … Dr. Poothullil’s reasons for addressing dietary issues are clear and compelling. … Well worth a careful reading.” – Peter C. Phillips, MD, Pediatric Oncologist

“Written specifically for parents, this book will enhance their knowledge and provide guidance during the stressful times being experienced.” — Cliff DeBenedetti, M.D. Pediatrician
