How to care for a child with brain cancer


This will hopefully provide you with knowledge of how to care for a child who is battling brain cancer.


Difficulty: Challenging



Step One

It is necessary to remember that this child is a blessing regardless of their disease. Then choosing a pediatric cancer doctor, this must be a person you feel you can trust as well as a person you understand and like.

Step Two

Remember that, there may be several different issues regarding development of this beautiful child, from delayed speech and other developmental delays, frustration is expected. Do not take that frustration out on the child.

Step Three

Listen to the specialists suggestions and ideas as to what steps to take, and always remember that if what that doctor says is not something that you agree with, you can get a 2nd 3rd, etc opinion on the situation.

Step Four

Most of all, remember to acknowledge everyone you know, especially that child, at least on a daily basis and preferably more often, of how much you love and cherish them.
