support for my children


support for my children

Hi, I was diagnosed with Glioblastoma(stage 4 brain cancer in July 2020. I have done very well with treatment but I am starting to deteriorate. I have 4 children ages. 16,15,10 and 8. Struggling with how much information to give them wondering if there  are any good resources out there people know of

I've heard good things about canteen providing support to the children of parents who have cancer.

Maybe this is a good place to start.


There is also cancer council's website

They have a link to a book that contains information on talking to kids about cancer.


I hope there is something in there that can be helpful for you.

Mummy’s wish is an organisation that helped me when I was first diagnosed. They sent books to help

explain cancer to the kids (they were 6 & 8 at the time.
