A book about childhood cancer from PatchSA

When Thabo feels unwell his mother takes him to the hospital in the city. They learn that Thabo has cancer and needs to stay there for treatment. Thabo is sad but he discovers new friends and he learns that he is not alone.

Written by Veronique Garbutt and Sue Boucher and beautifully illustrated by Michelle McLunen, this uniquely South African story aims to help remove the stigma of cancer and reassure children who may have to spend long periods of time away from home receiving treatment for their cancer.
