Advice from Karen, mum to Yasmin, a little girl with leukaemia.
Finding out your child has cancer is one of the worst things that can happen to a parent. Friends and family members wish to help but sometimes just don’t know what they could possibly do to make things better.
In the shell-shocked days, months and now into our second year of leukaemia treatment for our four-year-old daughter Yasmin, friends – old and new – have proved to be an invaluable aid and we don’t know how we would have got this far without them. Now we are nearing the end of treatment but we still need support. In this post, I’ve put together suggestions of ways, from my own experience, that friends can provide much-needed help.
