Breast Cancer Awareness Month: What Do We Tell the Kids?
During National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and all year long, this is wonderful advice about how to talk to children about a cancer diagnosis in the family. For a parent, one of the most stressful things about being diagnosed with cancer is knowing what to say to their children, and worrying about the wrong thing. Some hospitals do have Child Life Specialists available to help, but this clip from Rethink Breast Cancer is definitely worth watching.
