Seek and Accept Help
From those barely surviving on less than $1 a day, to the financially secure, from the single parent to the happily married couple; from the single child to the large family; from the family living in a tight knit community to newly arrived strangers; from families with a strong faith to those with none at all – cancer does not discriminate.
When faced with the crisis, most parents discover reserves of strength previously unknown to them. They survive the immense trauma, and are often positively changed by it. However, self-sustained heroism is an unreasonable expectation for any individual or family under stress.
