Helping Children When a Family Member Has Cancer

I just came across a great resource on the American Cancer Society’s website. Often when a family member or friend has cancer, we have a difficult type dealing with our feelings about their illness. Equally so, children’s questions and concerns should be addressed.

The website contains the following sections:

  • Dealing with diagnosis
  • Dealing with treatment
  • Dealing with recurrence or progressive illness
  • Understanding psychosocial support services
  • Dealing with a parent’s terminal illness
  • When a child has lost a parent
