“Still My Mommy is the story of a little girl whose brave mommy is fighting cancer. Fighting cancer makes her mommy look a little different so she wonders if her mommy will still be the same.”
In 2013, Megan Pomputius received an ovarian cancer diagnosis while raising her two year old daughter. Her diagnosis and treatment led to many questions from her child, motivating Megan to write a children’s book to help other mothers and families facing similar circumstances. Written from the child’s point of view, Still My Mommy is a helpful resource for families to assist young children in understanding that even though many physical changes may occur during a mother’s illness and treatment, she remains the same person. An easy read, reassuringly addressing common concerns faced by many families coping with this experience. Thoughtfully illustrated by Andrea Alemanno.
