What might be surprising but is in fact true, is that parents who have a child diagnosed with cancer, show strength when faced a stressful event, they don’t have more symptoms of stress compared to parents with healthy kids.
The number one and most important thing that parents should keep in mind, is that a sick child shouldn’t be in a stressful atmosphere, especially if diagnosed with cancer. Parents should always keep a smiling and happy face in front of their child so he/she will be reassured.
It’s important for parents to have a support system around them, because dealing with any problem alone is not easy. Having supporting family members or friends is very essential and very helpful through hard times.
Always keep in mind, hard times will pass and everything will be fine. You will come out of this situation feeling stronger and ready to face any challenge that you might come across.
