About this title:

Synopsis: This book is intended for children who have the disease and for their families. Not just mothers and fathers, but brothers and sisters too, for they are as severely affected - in a different way - as the patients themselves. It is also for grandparents, aunts, uncles, and friends. The outlook for children with cancer has improved greatly in the past several decades. Still, cancer in a child is an overwhelming experience for a family. Surviving Childhood Cancer: A Guide for Families describes the illness, its treatment, and how it changes the lives of both the child with cancer and his or her family. Although there is no simple recipe for survival, there are ways to make the experience of cancer more bearable. Written with great sensitivity and understanding, this book provides practical advice about how to cope with emotions and stress; how to handle communication about the illness with the child as well as with family members, friends, classmates, employers, and others; where to obtain information and help; and how to develop honest and trusting relationships with medical caregivers. Interwoven throughout the text are many insightful and inspirational stories of those who have faced and survived cancer; through these, the reader learns how others have not only gotten through the ordeal but also emerged from it stronger and more aware of what is truly important in life.
