The diagnosis of a life-threatening disease or disorder in a child, like cancer, is traumatic and has profound consequences for the child, their family and the family's support system. Cancer causes upheaval in everyone's life. Children with cancer often have to undergo invasive and painful procedures at a time when they are sick, hurting, and have feelings of uncertainty and fear of the unknown. Family members are called upon to be supportive to the child while searching to understand what this diagnosis means, what can be done to treat the cancer, and what will happen to their loved one.

As we treat your child, we also provide additional resources for emotional and family support.
