For the Kids
Children can be just as affected by serious illness as adults, either as patients or carers, family members or friends.
Here are some helpful websites to give children support through a very difficult time:
For a range of information for young people affected by cancer, go to www.canteen.org.au
For a friendly voice, advice and support at the end of a telephone, go to www.kidshelpline.com.au
