Talking With Our ChildrenWednesday, January 29, 2020 12:00 pm
If you or someone you know has been diagnosed with cancer, one of your first thoughts may be: How do I tell the children? Children are very sensitive to what is happening around them. They can sense when something is wrong and the adults they love aren’t talking to them about it.

Not being able to talk about their concerns can leave them feeling isolated, alone, sad or worried. Presented by TriageCancer.org.
