Childhood cancer awareness: How you can support a parent who has a child with cancer

The last thing parents want to hear is that their child has cancer. 

This diagnosis can make parents feel helpless, confused and frightened for the road ahead. 

The parents of the child diagnosed may need an extra set of hands, such as a friend or family member, and also someone they can lean on during this trying time. 

What they need from you may change overtime. At the start, they may need help with household chores such as cooking and cleaning. 

They’ll need your support, but will also need to spend time alone with their kids. Don’t be offended if a family needs a little bit of space. 

Remember that they are going through a difficult time. There may be periods when they need extra support, and other moments when they’ll need a little extra space.
