Maya Silver contacted Patricia Lee, Founder-President of United Cancer Survivors of America, Inc. about a year ago regarding one of her nonprofit programs, Athletes Kickin' Cancer. Maya and her father, Marc, were writing a resource book for teens who have a parent battling cancer. The book includes not only resources but also inspiring quotes from those who have already been through the experience.
Ms. Lee and her children, Rob and Alex Avram are quoted throughout book.
Ms. Lee says, "The book "My Parents Have Cancer And It Sucks" may be found on Amazon.com among other popular stores. It is a fantastic source of information and emotional support for teens. The chapters in the book include: 1. The News 2. Cancer 101 3. Lets Talk: How To Keep Your Family Communications Line Wide Open 4. How Things Will Change During Cancer 5. Parentification 6. Dealing With Stress 7. Risky Business 8. The Power And The Limits Of Optimism 9. The Benefit Of Friends 10. School Daz 11.Seeking Support 12.Facing A Dire Prognosis 13. Losing A Parent To Cancer 14. The New Normal: Life After Cancer. As you can see, this book covers just about everything from the beginning to end of what a teen goes through once hearing their parent has cancer. Maya contacted me in regards to the portion of the book that talks about athletes because of my Athletes Kickin' Cancer program but ended up discussing cancer in more detail. My children and I were thrilled to be interviewed by Maya and hope that teens around the world who need the help and support will find this book."
Maya Silver and Marc Silver have written other cancer related books, as well.
