No parent wants to think of their child being ill, and a diagnosis of leukaemia is a traumatic and devastating experience; one that is hard to understand and even harder to accept. However, it is important to have an accurate understanding of your child’s diagnosis, their treatment options and the support resources available to you all, and this informative guide aims to provide parents with all that.
If you’ve received the devastating news your child has leukaemia, you’ll no doubt have questions about who to turn to and what happens next. These and many other questions are answered in this book, where you’ll find words of wisdom and comfort on issues related to coping emotionally and financially, preserving ‘normal’ and sharing news of the diagnosis with friends and family, and the child themselves. It highlights the importance of learning to manage your own emotions so you can be the best source of support for your child and the rest of your family.
Armed with this knowledge, you, together with your support network of friends, family and the healthcare team, can work towards the hope of remission and recovery.
