Guide for Parents

Here is a helpful site sponsored by the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation that has a series of 20 animated short films, imaginary friends explain a wide range of complicated cancer topics in a way that kids can understand. Because the more they understand about their treatment, the less scary it will be.

This is an excellent guide produced by the National Cancer Institute. If you have been newly introduced to the childhood cancer community, the NCI Guide for Parents is excellent material to help guide you in your journey.
