Why My Mummy
Sunshine Coast Mum, Donna Penny, is the groundbreaking author who couldn’t find the right book to explain terminal cancer to her nine year old son Kai, so she wrote it herself.
Her brave story is retold through the eyes of a child, creating a precious tool for families faced with the challenge of talking to their kids about cancer. Donna tackled a topic that is usually impossibly difficult and scary to talk about to create a story that is reassuring and heartwarming.
We grabbed our tissues, and designed the Why My Mummy book, from layout to custom illustration, managing the print and promotion processes and the launch and management of a successful crowd funding initiative.
Donna’s book is available for purchase or can be donated worldwide to help families in need. With the plan to create a series of follow-up books, we are excited to continue working with Donna on her inspiring legacy.
