In August, my husband was diagnosed with acute myeloid leukemia.
As I began looking into resources for young adults with cancer, I found there is very
little information for their spouses and NO information for families with very young
children. All programs offered for children who have a parent with cancer start at
age six to 10. Our four-year-old understands a great deal more than many that age,
but I have not found many resources out there to help her or me. I am now providing
our family's only income as a full-time teacher, with my husband spending at least half
of every month in the hospital, plus a four-year-old to care for. I am lucky that we
have our parents nearby (and retired) to lighten my load, but what about those who
I just thought this is an area in which your site might provide more information.
No one else is.
