Father Marc and daughter Maya Silver's "My Parent Has Cancer And It Really Sucks" is written for teens who have a parent who is seriously ill. Marsha Silver was diagnosed with breast cancer, and Maya said she wanted to deal with her mother's illness privately and never felt comfortable talking about it. "I spent a lot of time dealing with that tension of feeling like I should be at home, at home with my mom and my family, but wanting to continue to build my life," Maya said.
