The author describes in detail the types of childhood cancer--how they affect the child, what treatments are available, how to cope with the changes this diagnosis will bring to the entire family, and where to go for help, both emotional and medical. The tone is encouraging yet honest about the problems that must be faced--not only from the diseases but from the treatments too, conventional as well as experimental. An appendix explains common medical tests and a glossary defines terms. The book includes comprehensive lists of organizations, clinics, and cancer centers, complete with names and addresses, and numerous bibliographies on specific subjects.
