Helping My Family
After diagnosis, you may feel a range of emotions. You may wonder how to talk with your children about cancer and the emotions we are feeling but struggle to express.
Even though it is hard, it is important to have age-appropriate conversations about cancer with your children, talking about what happens during cancer and the emotions your child might have. These conversations will help your children feel safe and loved.
Being diagnosed with cancer and undergoing treatment is accompanied by many fears and losses. Children may fear losing their loved one due to cancer. We can explain to our children what is happening, respond to their concerns and confusion, and offer reassurance.
