Cancer

How To Help Children And Youth With Cancer

Tumors; Leukemia

There are many kinds of cancer. There are many levels of severity. Without treatment, cancer is often fatal. Often the causes of cancer remain unknown. A combination of the following factors are suspected: genetics; exposure to environmental pollutants; infections; nutritional imbalances; prolonged stress. Children & youth often deal with these situations better than adults. A child or youth with cancer is very frightening and affects the whole family. It can drain energy from all family members and can cause great family tension making it even more difficult for the child or youth with cancer who can sense the burden she/he is creating. Support for all family members is vital. Getting second medical opinions is very important.
