"As a caring physician I understand the impact of a cancer diagnosis on family dynamics. When there are young children at home, the impact may be even greater as communication with them may be difficult or even withheld. The "Helping Children Cope" program shows everyone in the family how they may talk together about changes and feelings in a way that all family members can understand and contribute to."
- D.R., Physician
