|A diagnosis of childhood cancer changes the world around you. The effects are felt within the immediate family, and spread out to extended family, friends and the wider community, including classmates, teachers, neighbours and many more people who may come into contact with families affected by this illness. You may learn more about the medical aspects of childhood cancer than you ever thought that you would know, but it is also important to be aware of the emotional impact that comes with treatment.|
The aim of providing this information is to help children, parents, family members, as well as members from your wider community to be aware of the emotional effect of a childhood cancer diagnosis, to provide some helpful strategies to help manage these, and to let you know about websites and resources that you may find useful.
