This Week's Carenote - 11/12/13

 

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 don't? I just thought this is an area in which your site might provide more information. No one else is.
