About the Author

Katrina Lau Hammond is a mum to a seven-year-old perfectionist and a strong-willed five-year-old. She was first diagnosed with breast cancer when she was 34 years old when her youngest child was still a baby. She searched around for resources to help explain cancer to her then three-year-old, but couldn’t find anything that quite fit the bill. So, with her lived experience, she decided to write her own.

Katrina was diagnosed with another breast cancer on the other side seven months later. This gave her even further insight into the impact of cancer treatment on her family, and how a village of friends and family gathered around to support them. She is currently living with metastatic breast cancer, and in between the balance of ongoing treatment, tests, surgeries and child-rearing, Katrina has written a picture book for those bright young minds whose parents have unfortunately received a recent diagnosis.
