|Subject: granddaughter has cancer
We are looking for any help in dealing with children with cancer. Our 2½-year-old granddaughter was diagnosed with neuroblastoma and has been undergoing treatment since July '96. Are there any books you could recommend? The only one I have found is Jonathan Kellerman's 'Psychological aspect's of Childhood Cancer.' Is it worth ordering? Any help would be appreciated.
I'm so sorry to hear about this difficult situation.
Here are some web sites:
I have one other suggestion: raspberry leaf tea is a very soothing, healing, and beneficial drink, which can help your granddaughter to cope with medical treatment and other stress. It can be frozen in ice cube trays or popsicle molds as a healthful treat for children.
