Riassunto: Keri Fields is only seven years old when she learns the reason for her mother's sickness. She has seen firsthand how badly her mother feels when she is sick. Keri listens carefully as her mother tells her about a boo-boo called cancer that is causing her to be sick enough to throw up and tired enough to lie down often. To help explain the things that will happen while her mother is being treated by the doctor, Keri's parents present her with a very special gift. Keri quickly discovers this is no ordinary gift! Imagine you have been diagnosed with cancer.

Now, imagine how you would go about explaining your diagnosis to a young child. Wiggy Wanda is a children's book that will help open the door for women everywhere to begin to tell their personal stories to the young children in their lives - perhaps even their daughters.

Dall'autore: Wiggy Wanda is easy-to-read story about a mother with cancer, who along with her spouse, finds a unique way to tell their young daughter about her sickness and some of the things that may occur during her treatment.


Each year thousands of adults find themselves in a position to tell their loved ones they have a serious illness such as cancer.  This is never easy, but it is especially difficult when one is faced with telling children.


My family is no stranger to cancer.  Wiggy Wanda was written after my Aunt Brenda Sue Scott passed in 2006, following an eight-year battle with breast cancer.  I spoke with Brenda often about the side effects of medications taken to treat cancer and other things that could occur during one's journey to be well, including hair loss. One evening as Brenda and I were talking, my eight-year old daughter Rana asked her if she could have her wig when she passed.  Brenda laughed  kindheartedly  as she snatched the gray-ratty wig from her head, handing it to Rana.  "Don't wait until I'm gone-- enjoy it now!" she said, giving Rana the wig and a big hug.  Rana treasured the wig and played with it often, but when she wasn't playing with it, she would park it on her doll's head at the foot of her bed.


After Brenda's passing, I began to think about how parents might have conversations with children to explain serious illnesses.  It was the conversations I had had with Brenda and the gift of her wig to Rana that inspired me to write Wiggy Wanda and to create a Wiggy Wanda doll.

Wiggy Wanda is not meant to be an authority on cancer.  I simply hope Wiggy Wanda will help to  spark conversation between adults and children about the symptoms, treatments, and fears associated with cancer or other serious illnesses.
