Hi @csummerville – Thank you for your honest response. I hope you find the support and encouragement you need as a part of this group. Perhaps you would be interested in this blog post, written by another cancer family. They provide great insight into what it’s like to go through the diagnosis of childhood cancer as a family: http://myilluminateblog.com/a-letter-to-other-families-battling-childhood-cancer/. We look forward to connecting with you further!
