Explaining liver transplant to children

Mending Mum by Julia Rawlinson

Mending Mum book

A book to explain liver transplant to your children

When you are facing liver transplant, how do you explain it to your children?

Parents of younger children tell us that explaining transplantation to a child is a major challenge.

Addenbrooke's Liver Transplant Association (ALTA), in conjunction with the well-known children's author, Julia Rawlinson have created a beautiful little book, 'Mending Mum', to help with this sensitive situation.

The book is free to parents facing liver transplant (from any of the transplant units).

The illustrator is Tiphanie Beeke, Julia's regular illustrator, who in fact is an ex nurse so the pictures in the book are realistic.
