Abstract:

A Mom of Many Hats helps children affected by a parent battling cancer and undergoing chemotherapy with a healing literary experience. The combined storybook/chapter-style book is written for children of varied ages. Each child can experience the story in an age appropriate manner. Each family can then use this book as a tool to discuss the cancer journey. Cancer treatments take time. The books content and length are intended to assist the family during this time. The story take place during summer, and Olivia and Brad find out that their energetic mom has cancer. Their carefree lives are turned upside down. They feel helpless and scared, among other emotions. As predicted, mom s hair falls out during chemotherapy. Seeing their mom down, Olivia comes up with a brilliant idea that takes on a life of its own. She and Brad, with the help of Grandma and Dad, plan a surprise for their mom: they throw her the happiest hat shower ever! Each guest brings a hat that hands their mom a virtue (for example, the fireman s fire hat delivers courage), which she and her family will need to get through chemotherapy and beyond. The experience is positive and powerful for everyone. By the end of the story, Olivia and Brad have learned a life lesson or two.
