with Montserrat Coughlin Kim


Parents and Caregivers are welcome to join author Montserrat Coughlin Kim as she reads and discusses her award-winning book, My Dad and the Dragon. This children’s book honestly describes what it is like when a parent is diagnosed with cancer through the allegory of a cancer dragon. Cameron, the main character, openly shows kids family life, fears, and joy.

This talk is for parents/grandparents/adults who have a child in their life under the age of 13. We will discuss talking about cancer with kids, handling complex topics, and more.

This program is offering in partnership with Hope Connections for Cancer Support, Life with Cancer, and the Ulman Foundation.
