Coping With Childhood Leukemia and Lymphoma
Children with leukemia or lymphoma may face long periods of treatment. However, most can expect to have full and productive lives. Many childhood cancer survivors return to school, attend college, enter the workforce, marry and become parents. Still, each family living with a childhood cancer diagnosis is thrown into an unfamiliar world. Coping With Childhood Leukemia and Lymphoma is for families who are dealing with this difficult circumstance.
School-age children are often unable to attend school for some period of time following a diagnosis of leukemia or lymphoma. School is a major part of a child's life, and the loss of social outlets, connection to friends, and play activities is upsetting for many children. Changes to the regular daily schedule can cause your child to feel upset and sad. There are ways that you can support your child through these changes.
