Parker's Pockets

Gemma Huckstep

Parker's Pockets is a story for children of all ages whose sibling has been diagnosed with an illness such as cancer. Parents are often separated from their children for long periods of time, meaning life as they knew it changes. Siblings are inadvertently less focused upon by parents during this time. It highlights the importance of talking about worries and feelings and reinforces that how they are feeling is normal. It encourages good communication, resilience and positive relationships.

Gemma Huckstep is a mum to four wonderful children who lives in the quiet seaside town of Broadstairs, Kent. Following her own battle with cancer, she became an award winning blogger and she uses her platform to raise awareness of the importance of mental health and wellbeing during difficult times such as these. Her son was diagnosed with osteosarcoma in December 2019, which impacted immensely on the whole family. Gemma spent a lot of time in the hospital with her son for nearly a year, meaning leaving the girls behind. This was where the idea for Parker's Pockets began.
