Children can and do survive cancer; the last decade has seen many major advancements in treatment. Written honestly, yet in a reassuring tone, by a reference librarian whose child has survived cancer, Children with Cancer draws together a wealth of up-to-date information essential for anyone who wishes to help a child or family through this ordeal--including relatives, friends, teachers, and clergymen, as well as doctors, nurses, and other health care professionals. The information ranges from sophisticated, hard-to-find medical facts to practical tips on how to handle side effects, and much more. Describing in detail the whole range of childhood cancers, Bracken explores how they affect the child, the treatments available, how to cope with the changes this diagnosis will bring to the entire family, and where to go for both medical and emotional help. It also includes an appendix of common medical tests, a glossary of terms, and comprehensive lists of organizations, clinics, and cancer centers, complete with names and addresses.

Book Description Oxford University Press Inc, United States, 2010. Paperback. Condition: New. Revised edition. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Today most children can and do survive cancer, but the bewildering range of modern treatments, and the stunning number of information sources, can be daunting for parents trying to manage the health and care of their children. Written honestly but in a deeply reassuring tone by a reference librarian whose child survived cancer, Children with Cancer was the first book to bring together a wealth of up-to-date information essential for anyone who wishes to help a child or family through this ordeal--including relatives, friends, teachers, and clergymen. Now, in this revised and updated edition, Jeanne Munn Bracken once again offers parents and care providers a warmly written and reliable guide through the childhood cancer experience. The information collected here ranges from sophisticated, hard-to-find medical facts to practical tips on how to handle side effects, and much more. Describing in detail the whole range of childhood cancers, Bracken explores how they affect the child, the treatments available, how to cope with the changes this diagnosis will bring to the entire family, and where to go for both medical and emotional help. Children with Cancer also includes an appendix of common medical tests, a glossary of terms, and comprehensive lists of organizations, clinics, and cancer centers, complete with names and addresses. The new edition also digests and makes sense of the incredibly wide range of internet sites that deal with childhood cancer, providing readers with an accessible roadmap through this vast amount of material. Features Full of important information for parents of children combating cancer Knowledgeable, compassionate voice of author with first hand experience with this difficult disease A comprehensive road map for families of children diagnosed with various malignancies.
