Science student pens children's book about cancer

Explaining cancer to children can be difficult, but UWindsor science student Mckenzie Cervini has done it with all the flair of Dr. Seuss.

Cervini has written and illustrated a children’s book about the disease. It’s colourful — and it rhymes.

“I found there was a gap in communicating cancer in a simple way,” Cervini said of how she came up with the idea for the book she titled, The C-Word.”

“It covers the biology in layman’s terms.”

In her book, a tumour is a “strange-looking lump.” Some tumours are “nice,” but cancerous ones are “mean” and “make you slump.”
