Before the diagnosis of cancer in a child can appear intense and varied emotional reactions (anger, sadness, guilt, fear ...) that are normal in this situation. You have to take time for the intensity of these emotions to decrease and at the same time to get the idea of what happens. This time may vary depending on each person. It is important to allow yourself different times to express and share feelings and emotions.

It is advisable that you ask the medical teams that treat your child, the information necessary to understand the disease and treatments, as many times as you need. In times of strong emotional impact it is difficult to capture all the information or it is harder to understand what is being told.
