If you have been diagnosed with cancer and have a kid, it might be difficult for you to manage hectic schedules, help with homework and just be present in your child’s life. We get it and we are here for you and your whole family with emotional support services and educational classes.

He will also discuss key principles that parents can use to encourage coping and resilience in children.

    I think this is an excellent source for cancer patients. Is there a list of issues for cancer patients and survivors covering all topics where help is needed? Sandy143
