Tools to help your family cope with cancer

A diagnosis of cancer changes a family forever. Ordinary responsibilities become more demanding, and you sometimes need assistance balancing the specific needs of your children. Cancer in the Family outlines steps necessary to help your children understand what happens when a parent has been diagnosed with cancer. You can learn how to strengthen ties and express concern for each other, even when a parent is sick.

You'll learn how to:

  • Talk to your children each step of the way and answer difficult questions about the condition
  • Help children cope when a parent feels ill
  • Manage role changes and disruptions in routines
  • Recognize signs that your child needs help
