Children

Caring for Children who are Grieving or Living with an Illness

No matter how young or old a child is, each child handles grief, illness and treatment in unique ways. You may feel like there is so much to talk about with your child that you don’t know where to begin. You may also have difficulty getting your child to open up and share how he or she is feeling and coping.

The following links will take you to information and free brochures that you can download.
