Center for Cancer and Blood Disorders Patient and Family Support Services
When your child is diagnosed with cancer or a chronic blood disorder, it can be emotionally overwhelming. Not only are you worried for the health of your child, but you wonder how you will be able to navigate the months or years that your child will be receiving treatment.
In addition to the questions about your child’s treatment and prognosis, there are questions about medical costs, about potential job loss if a parent has to miss work, concerns about school attendance, and how to deal with the feelings surrounding the news that a child has cancer.
The medical team at the Center for Cancer and Blood Disorders is well aware of the emotional and social impact of this situation. It is the reason we have a team that will work with you and your family, and support you as your child receives care at the Center for Cancer and Blood Disorders.
