Children’s Cancer Information & Support

Children's cancer information

I don’t claim to be an expert on cancer in children or young people.

Far from it.  If anything I was only dimly aware that cancer does hit young people and sometimes, tragically, they don’t recover - and that wisdom was mostly gleaned from movies.

Until, of course, it was my friend who got ill.  My wonderful friend who never did anyone any harm, who didn’t do drugs, didn’t do bad things to other people.

From what movies had told me, this didn’t happen to good people.

Good people get better when they get ill, and people visit them in their beds, where they look merely a little pale, and that might just be due to the soft focus of cameras.

If you’re reading this though, you know life doesn’t really work that way.  And so, I’ve pulled together some great resources from people who do know what they’re doing, to help you all.
