Can you recommend a book for a young kid to help explain about terminal illness?

A relative has a terminal illness, despite being in good health they will have to undergo treatment that will make them unwell.
There are children in the family that need to understand this at an age appropriate level, ranging from 4-10
Can anyone recommend any books that could help with this please?
Thanks in advance.
