Learning that your child has cancer is a devastating moment for any parent. You may experience a range of emotions, from anger, sadness, fear, guilt, denial, to simply feeling numb, unable to process what is happening or comprehend all the information you are receiving. It is important to understand there is no right or wrong way to feel. Coming to terms with what lays ahead can be overwhelming, in addition to the ongoing stress of appointments and treatments while caring for your family.
It’s important to remember that you play a significant role in how your child copes with their diagnosis. Focusing on supporting your child and family with love and reassurance can also help you cope throughout this difficult time.
