The Right Move

Several times in the past I have blogged about newpaper articles featuring my patients. Now I’m going to blog about a newspaper article/blog post written by one of my patient’s parents. So often, our focus is on the children who are being treated, and that is only appropriate. But childhood cancer affects the entire family, even when the “child” is 20 and a college student.

I have a patient who was referred to me by one of my colleagues who used to be one of my trainees. His mother writes for a local newspaper. Her farewell column deals, in part, with what it’s like to be the parent of a kid with cancer. I loved what she had to say. Please go take a look!
