What About My Kids? is a comprehensive resource that addresses the broad range of issues and challenges parents with young children may encounter when a parent is diagnosed with breast cancer. By providing relevant, accessible and practical information to address the complex needs of parents and children, What About My Kids? aims to help families cope with breast cancer together.

In 2002, the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation–Ontario Region provided funding to the Ottawa Hospital Regional Cancer Centre to create this valuable resource (published in 2006).
