Living with Childhood Cancer: A Practical Guide to Help Families Cope

Leigh Wolznick and Carol Goodheart

Mother-daughter team Leigh Wolznick and Carol Goodheart draw on their own family’s experience with cancer, as well as their professional expertise – one as a hospital counsellor and the other as a psychologist. The authors lay out practical strategies for coping with overwhelming medical information, frequent invasive procedures, heavy financial burdens, and crippling stress. Their insights are illustrated by interviews with cancer families of all kinds, as well as the nurses, doctors and others who care for them. Topics covered include handling emotions, reducing stress, choosing a hospital, dealing with insurers, communicating with health professionals, and understanding the impact of the disease on family and friends.
