Children, teens, and young adult cancers
It is a very challenging and difficult time when a child is diagnosed with cancer. The child with cancer and everyone close to him/her may go through many different feelings and emotions. First reactions may include disbelief, anger, shock, sadness and fear.
Cancer Council is committed to improving the lives of children with cancer, and their families, through practical support and research.
