Talk About Cancer
 
It's also really important to just talk to someone about what you're going through once you find out you have cancer. Ask your nurse if the hospital has a child life specialist. These are really helpful people whose job it is to make you feel more comfortable and less scared when you're getting treatment. They can also tell you about special programs for kids with cancer that your hospital offers. Some of these programs may be for groups of kids, or you can just talk to one or two people who can help you with some of the things you are going through. This is what social workers, counselors, ministers, or psychologists can do, and they can really help you feel a lot better. Ask your nurse, doctor or child life specialist about how you can see one of these people.
