Living with Illness: Naomi's Story - Living with Leukaemia

Living with Illness: Naomi's Story - Living with Leukaemia

This powerful and eye opening picture book uses the first-person testimony of Naomi, a 10-year-old girl with acute lymphoblastic leukaemia. Naomi bravely explains what it was like to find out she had cancer, when she lost all her hair and what it was like spending so much time in hospital.

The intimate and direct impact of using Naomi’s real first-person testimony encourages us to empathise with her situation, and to understand how some children’s lives are very different from their own. Naomi talks about school, family, friends and explains the confusion and chaos caused by cancer.

The BAFTA award-winning stories were originally produced as animations for the BBC. Aimed at children aged 9 and up, these powerful and evocative stories have now been captured in book form as rich, visual testimonies of the impact an illness has on a child’s daily life and how they cope and are able to enjoy the life that they have.
