Hearing you or your child has cancer are the most isolating words a family can hear. The beauty of childhood is the innocence and feeling of invincibility, those are both devastated by cancer. A world where the terminology is foreign, and you might be the only one in your community experiencing cancer, you feel like No One Understands. No One Understands will take you through all of the firsts cancer brings to your family, and while no two battles with cancer are the same we are going to introduce you to caregivers, patients and experts who have been in a similar situation.
In this episode, we discuss the physical and emotional toll of treatment. We will hear from both a cancer survivor and a pediatric oncology nurse. As navigating pediatric cancer treatment may seem like a daunting task, both our guests will share important treatment information, helpful tips and key takeaways for both patients and caregivers.
Waiting for the Phone to Ring
In this episode we explore the very beginnings of a cancer diagnosis. The thing about cancer is that it can just be such a shock. Few people are really ready to hear the words “It’s cancer”. Once you hear those words, you are overcome by many emotions that deliver so much shock and uncertainty. Immediately, there is a feeling that No One Understands. The feeling of loneliness is overwhelming. Where do you turn? Where do you go? Hear from parents, patients and experts who have been there and can answer some of those questions.
Humanity at its best!
If you or someone you know has been through a childhood cancer diagnosis, you’ll absolutely benefit from this podcast. Incredibly compelling storytelling via parents and practitioners.
I was so moved by the family featured in episode 1. To have not 1 but 2 children go through a cancer journey is both mind-blowing and heartbreaking. Their endless positivity and gratitude is beyond inspirational.
A fantastic resource for anyone dealing with cancer diagnosis
I haven’t come across a podcast (or anything really) that provides an inside look into what it’s like to live through a childhood cancer diagnosis and everything that a family goes through as a result. I’m going to pass this along to family/friends who know anyone living through this. Fantastic resource!
