My Child and Cancer

My Child and Cancer

Early diagnosis treatment can save lives postDiscovering that your child has cancer is a devastating experience and you will need encouragement as you support your child through treatment.

You may be facing:

  • constant stress;
  • experiencing feelings of fear, anger or guilt;
  • dealing with a lack of sleep;
  • being concerned regarding finances for treatment & day-to-day living expenses;
  • being anxious or confused regarding treatment options;
  • worrying about other siblings / family members;
  • not sure if you will cope with work, or if your employer will be supportive;
  • dealing with well meant, but insensitive responses to what you & your family are going through
  • or dealing with rejection by your community due to myths regarding cancer

This can be overwhelming and we would like to invite you to join our Facebook support group, CANSA TLC – Childhood Cancer Support, where we can offer guidance and encouragement & where you will meet other parents walking this road.

We would also like to make you aware of our CANSA TLC (Tough Living with Cancer) service offering to support children / teens and families affected by cancer, including our TLC facilities (accommodation for parents of children receiving treatment / TLC Support Rooms) – read more about this here…

You can also find useful information regarding Childhood Cancer in our fact sheets.

Let’s take hands and fight Childhood Cancer together!
