Children, Teens & Families

A cancer diagnosis will have a huge impact on a family and this can be particularly difficult if you have young children or teenagers.

You might find it helpful to get advice on how to tell your children and to understand the emotions they may go though and how they might react. 

Your relationship with your partner may also change as you go through a variety of emotions and perhaps physical changes. Sometimes it is easier to discuss very complex feelings out with the relationship and it can also help to meet other people going through the same situation and to understand that emotional and practical support is available.
