If you are reading this page, the likelihood is that your child or a child close to you has recently been diagnosed with childhood cancer.

Finding out that your child has cancer is incredibly difficult to hear, but we hope these resources will help give you more information and let you know about useful support and resources that are available. 

This summary should reinforce any information you have been already given and it should answer some of your questions. If you have any further worries or questions, please discuss them with the healthcare team looking after your child.
