Connect Group: My child was recently diagnosed

The first few months after receiving a diagnosis is an extremely challenging time. It can be overwhelming to manage such drastic change while also trying to focus on the care of your child and your family. 

This connect group is an informal online catch-up for parents, guardians and carers who are at a similar stage of their cancer experience. 

With Redkite social workers Sara and Mikaela there to guide the discussion, you will be able to safely share your experience, discuss challenges and learn strategies that others have found useful. You’re welcome to share as much or as little as you like.

This group is for you if:

  • You are a parent/guardian/carer of a child 0-18 years old who has a cancer diagnosis
  • Your child was diagnosed in the last 6 months
  • You want to meet and talk with other parents/guardians/carers whose children have also been recently diagnosed

Some of the topics we will discuss include:

  • Family relationships and wellbeing
  • Navigating the health system
  • Emotional health and stress
  • Helping your child with medicine and treatments
  • Managing emergencies
  • Practical challenges, e.g. house tasks, finances, child care, etc. 

We also welcome you to talk about any other topics you’d like to discuss.
