Support from family and friends
The support we received from family and friends was fantastic and it helped us a lot. The staff at the hospital were wonderful and always on hand if we needed anything. We have also met a lot of other parents going through the same thing and it helps to talk to them as well.
Despite the strain that the treatment has taken on her body, Bethan is coping remarkably, even finding some joy in the uncomfortable circumstances.
Bethan now looks forward to her hospital visits. It sounds a bit strange I know but she has made friends there and she enjoys going to the activity centre where she can do her school work and the staff members help her do some great things.
We never thought we would see the day that she enjoyed going to hospital but it’s good that she does. Bethan is 13 now and doing really well.
