And, these emotions and behaviors may vary greatly from family member to family member. It is important to understand that just as each person is different, so too is the way each individual behaves during difficult times. Help in understanding the behaviors of your family members, and of your child with cancer, is available not only on this website, but also by reaching out to the social workers and doctors helping your child at this time.
