Dear mothers and fathers,

Having cancer is sad and complicated. Particularly if there is a toddler around. What do you tell your child? It can help if your child can make sense of what´s happening. We hope that our information, animation clips and pictures can support you. Of course, there are some tips too.

Read and look at these pages together with your child. If we have forgotten anything, please let us know.


I am Jess  and I knock away the cancer ghosts with my fists. I can comfort you, sometimes I am shy but also very cheerful, and I prefer to just hang out on the couch. And now I am there as a stuffed friend!


You can find me at the shop (only in Dutch).
