Helping Children When Someone They Know Has Cancer

On this page

When children learn that someone they know has cancer, it can be upsetting and confusing for them. Here we will try to help you understand what children might be thinking and feeling, how to talk to them, and share some ideas on how you may be able to help them through this time.

Our lifesaving work is made possible thanks to generous supporters like you.

Donate now so we can continue to provide access to critical cancer information, resources, and support to improve lives of people with cancer and their families.
