Jon's Tricky Journey: A Story for Inuit Children with Cancer and Their Families is an important dual language book written for Inuit children and their families as they face childhood cancer diagnosis. Written in Inuktitut and English, the first section of the book tells the story of an Inuit boy Jon’s experience of cancer, starting from first diagnosis. The latter half of the book features information for both parents and caregivers alike. It includes tools such as the Northern Pain Scale, which helps doctors and nurses understand the severity of a child’s pain using Inuit facial expressions. In addition to the story about one child's experiences the picture book lists children's hospitals and cancer treatment facilities and a map of flight paths from Arctic locations to these facilities; navigation and coordination services by region; descriptions of all medical team members; answers to FAQs; the northern pain scale, most appropriate for Inuit children; a glossary; an art project; and additional resources. This informative book was written by Pediatric Nurse Practitioner, Patricia McCarthy. Highly recommended.
