I actually don’t have cancer but I am a prospective medical student and I was wondering about pursuing paediatric oncology. As a part of that interest I have a paper in English that I’m writing on the effects of cancer on relationships in teens. I was wondering if anyone would be willing to help me out? The paper’s mainly focussed on friendships and relationships with family but any help I can get is SO appreciated. Also any thoughts you guys have on what your medical teams are like? What does you oncologist deal with etc.?
My name is Valeria, I actually dont have any cancer, but I am writting a book about it, I really would appreciate if you could tell me your stories so I could take some ideas,
Thank you everybody!
I found this kid on youtube when my friend showed me the video. He could probably use some support, so that means you TLC! Please check it out, I think he would love to here from you all.
Hi, I’m a parent of a teen that was diagnosed with ALL
4 years ago. We will hit that magical 5 years in remission
mark next July, 2010. While that date is always in my
mind, there have been many stages we’ve gone through
in between — luckily no readmittance to the hospital!
I’m not a teen, but I coordinate activities here in Rochester NY for teen cancer survivors…and I’m a two time cancer survivor myself.
It’s not easy to deal with all the regular stuff in life…then add cancer and it’s like somebody just dumped a watermelon on your already overloaded paper plate. How’s that analogy?
Anyway, I want everybody here to know that you are not alone…and that simply by connecting with others here you can find ways to deal with all this cancer stuff. Keep hanging in there…you have a lot to share.
