- How to talk to my child about their diagnosis?
- What should we do as parents to support our children and face their illness together?
At ABC Medical Center we know that one of the keys to the patients’ well-being, in addition to the care and treatments we offer, is the support and understanding of family and friends, even more so when it comes to pediatric patients, because when an infant is diagnosed with cancer, one of the most difficult things is having to explain their health status and what changes it may bring.
Each child is different, some understand faster than others, so their approach on a day-to-day basis will depend on their age and maturity. For this reason, we share with you a small guide that can be very useful at a time as complicated as a childhood cancer diagnosis and that will help your child to be less scared.
