Author Tiffany Williford wrote this story for her young daughter when her husband was battling cancer. This book was created out of necessity, after looking but not finding the right words and materials online and in libraries to explain to her daughter about her dad’s cancer. Daddy Has an Owie was written to help parents be able to talk to their children about the heavy topic of cancer in a lighthearted way. The character inspired from her own daughter; gives perspective from a young girl getting understanding of her dad’s cancer, chemo, hair loss, and other symptoms that come along with his illness. With its heartwarming and whimsical illustrations, Daddy Has an Owie is a great book for any parent, caregiver, or grandparent to help explain any type of cancer to a child. Appropriate for ages 3 to 12. This book and other books from this site help to fund the Demetrius Tirrell Williford Scholarship.
