About parents and doctors

parents tips about childhood cancer

More often than not, doctors will focus on the medical side. That’s their job. They can’t REALLY get involved with what we parents go through at home and they are not supposed to either.
You the parents know your child best and what he wants and needs. Treatment protocol is what it is – the drugs, the dosage etc. and not much we can do about that, but get involved and seek control where you can. Don’t sit back if you are skeptical about something; ask question no matter how much of an inconvenience it seems to be for your medical staff. You are your child’s voice in all of this!
