Supporting Kids of Parents with Cancer


Should parents with cancer tell their children? We believe they should: that children should take in the fact of a parent’s condition, work with the parent to move beyond it, and live the best possible life going forwards. Which is why we work to this end. yet, even today, too few parents are reluctant to communicate to this extent with their children. Health is not only a matter between patient and health professional, or limited to treatment scenarios, but is grounded in the community. We strive to encourage this view of health and establish a new culture of openness.
