Facing the challenges of cancer with your children
與您的孩子一起面對癌症的挑戰

A Chinese Carer Support Group 華人關顧者支持小組

We know that being the parent, carer or grandparent of a child who has been diagnosed with cancer brings with it a whole range of challenges and questions.

In partnership with CanRevive (a cancer support organization for the Chinese community-based in Sydney NSW), Redkite is offering two information sessions for Chinese families who have a child (0-18 yrs) diagnosed with cancer. We invite you to attend both information sessions where you can receive some more information about how to care for your child and your family, as you go through cancer treatment. It will also be an opportunity to meet other parents having similar experiences. Some time throughout the sessions will be allocated for you to ask questions and discuss anything you want more information about.

Information will be provided on the following topics:

Session 1

  • Identifying the services and organisations that can help you and your family
  • Family wellbeing, and managing family life throughout treatment
  • Finances during treatment – Redkite financial assistance, and accessing support from Centrelink

Session 2

  • Managing stress and emotions as you progress through treatment
  • Navigating the health system, and understanding the treatment that is required for your child
  • Education, and how your child can continue education throughout treatment

The two sessions will be hosted over two weeks and will be facilitated by two Redkite social workers, Sam and Emmy, and Chinese speaking facilitator Carole Chow from CanRevive. Chinese subtitles will be provided on the PowerPoint slides.

If you’d rather keep your camera off or just listen, that’s okay.

This group is for you if:

  • You are Chinese, and a parent, carer, or grandparent of a child 0-18 years old who has a cancer diagnosis
  • Your child is currently receiving treatment
  • You want learn strategies and meet other parents having similar challenges and experiences.
