Jalen's understanding of the word "cancer"
He finished reading the dedication and the conversation between Jalen and I went like this -
"Jalen do you know what the word cancer means?"
"What does cancer mean?"
"It means you get sick and die."
"Actually Jalen not everyone who has cancer dies."
"Yea they do Nana - if they get cancer they die."
"Not true Jalen. I have had cancer twice and I am alive and very healthy."
"Oh - that's good. Can I read my book now?"
End of discussion.
Not such a heavy conversation after all.
Have a gentle Tuesday.
