Connect Group: My child has a brain tumour

Caring for a child who has been diagnosed with a brain tumour comes with a unique set of challenges. 

This Connect Group is an informal online catch-up for parents, guardians and carers who are in a similar situation.

With two Redkite Social Workers 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.

Topics include:

  • Managing feelings of grief, loss, and change that comes with a diagnosis
  • There is a higher level of care that may be required for some children or teenagers
  • Limits of community resources available
  • Managing (potential) long-term impacts
  • Worries about relapse/recurrence

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

This group is for you if:

  • You are a parent/guardian/carer of a child aged 0-18 who has a cancer diagnosis (brain tumour)
  • Your child is currently receiving treatment or has finished treatment within the last 12 months
  • You want to meet and talk with other parents/guardians/carers whose children have a similar diagnosis

Next Connect Group for parents and carers of children diagnosed with a brain tumour

  • Next date currently TBC 
  • Usually held at 11.30am (AEST)
  • Online using Zoom
  • Facilitated by two Redkite Social Workers
