Understanding Childhood Cancer
Organized by: Conard Franz
When Your Child Has Cancer: The diagnosis of cancer in a child or teenager can be a devastating blow to parents and other family members who love the child. Cancer creates an instant crisis in the family. The American Cancer Society (ACS) provides information to help parents of children with cancer know what to expect. ACS offers suggestions on topics such as coping with the diagnosis, dealing with financial and insurance issues, and nutrition for children with cancer. This is where we come in the help be Supportive to Someone With Cancer If someone close to you has cancer, do you find it hard to talk to them about it? Do you worry that you'll say the wrong thing? If so, you're not alone. The ACS can help you understand how to be supportive and helpful when you talk with someone who has cancer. My Goal with the Relay For Life is to help the American Cancer Society and it's mission!
