Front cover of Tom has lymphoma storybook

It's #NationalStoryTellingWeek and we have just published a new edition of our storybook Tom has lymphoma, which is written specifically for parents and carers to read with their children.

Developed in collaboration with the charity CLIC Sargent, this book is designed to help children understand what lymphoma is and the treatment it involves. It follows the story of 10-year-old Tom who has lymphoma. It puts this complicated condition across in a simple way and the story covers Tom's tests and scans and through treatment.
