Short but touching conversation between a father and his young daughter about
her grandad's recent diagnosis of PCa.
I found it of interest because it's an example of how to explain to a child that a dear family member has cancer, but doing so in a simply factual, and not overly emotional, way.
One gets the impression from watching and listening to the girl during the talk that she understands that something is serious here, but she is still young enough to possess a certain degree of childhood innocence that, for now at least, is protecting her from coming to realize just how serious the situation may be. "There's something wrong with grandad" is all she really understands.
Credit to the dad in this video for not displaying a negative tone, which his daughter would have picked up on immediately.
Maybe that's the real value of this video, showing how a parent can communicate to his child the presence of cancer in a relative, and in a realistic, but not negative ("Grandad's gonna die soon!"), way.
If you have grandkids, how did they get the word about
cancer in the family? How did they handle it? https://www.bing.com/videos/search?q=daughter+prostate+cancer+youtube&view=detail&mid=7777e2dc8ff07cd5b8187777e2dc8ff07cd5b818&form=vire
