Kids' Book and Co-Parenting Calendar Kit for Divorce

Style

When your child has cancer, you're entered into a world of medical terminology, doctor's appointments, and fear that you never imagined having to face. You rely on your phone's calendar to keep track of the many "must-dos" of your life, but your kid can't reference your phone like you can, and has trouble keeping track of what's happening, and when.

You can make a horrible time a bit easier on them with our Kids' Cancer set, which helps your kids visually understand when they'll be home, and when they'll have treatment. You can also give them something to look forward to with the set of light activity steel buttons, which are fun activities that are easy enough to do from bed.

These kits are also available with bulk discounts for professionals.
