I have only just found this Parent page. I wish I had found it earlier.
My 14 year old son was diagnosed with ALL Luekaemia back in December 2016 so I suppose you could say we are 'experienced'.
It's been very tough but as a family we are learning to adjust to life. The help from family, friends hospital staff has been invaluable.
My son has made it through intensive chemo treatment amd has just commenced maintenamce treatment.
My advice to parents who are new to this is to take one day at a time. Don't over think the future just sim to get through one day at a time. If you don't understand something them ask. There is no such thing as a stupid question... if you still don't understand or you forget then ask again and keep asking. It helps to have a note book to joint things down, doing this helps me feel I still have some control over what is happening.
Enjoy the good days (you will have them).
