While supplying the facts, Howell, a cancer patient as well as a practitioner in pediatric hematology and ontology, gives families and friends information they can use in helping a child get through treatment. She describes the different types of childhood cancer so adults can tell the child what is going on with his or her body. She also describes the medical system, chemotherapy and other medicines, stem cell and bone marrow transplants, common side effects, alternative medicine, and clinical trials, and gives advice on what to do when cancer treatments stop working.
