Paediatric Cancer Support Groups
As a parent of a child who has cancer, remember that you are not alone. You can get help from cancer support groups, where you will be given the opportunity to talk to people who understand what you’re going through. By joining a cancer support group you can spend time with people who share or understand your experience. This simple act of sharing can make an enormous difference to the way you feel.
