Helping to explain cancer to little ones

January 28th, 2008 · No Comments

I came across this website and though it is sad it is also sweet.

Kim Goebel lost her battle to breast cancer but before she did she created dolls that can be used to help explain cancer to children.  Here is a description from one of the dolls:

Kim is Causasian. She has blond hair, blue eyes and a nice smile. She likes to go wherever you go, and do the same things you do. Kimmie will always be your friend. Kim arrives with a colorful 35 page illustrated storybook titled, “Mommy and Me..taking care of each other”. She also has two different removable wigs, one with longer hair like Mommy’s before her treatment, and another shorter wig with curly hair, like Mommy’s hair when it begins to grow back. She even has a pretty pink scarf to cover your doll’s head, like Mommy wears when her hair has gone. Kim comes dressed in a pair of white shiny (easy to clean) pants, and a cute pink waistcoat that has a pink heart emblazoned with a Breast Cancer logo on it. The dolls are made of soft stitched machine washable fabric and should carefully line dry or hang to dry. Parental supervision is recommended for children under the age of 3.”
