Ways to Help Chronically Ill Children by Tammy Gagne
All kids get sick now and then, but children who suffer from chronic illnesses don't recover quickly from their diseases. They have to deal with being sick for long periods of time, sometimes indefinitely. Dealing with a chronic illness is no fun. Often it means staying in the hospital or at home, away from school and friends. It can also mean enduring painful medical procedures. All of this can make a chronically ill child feel sad, scared, and lonely at times.
You may wonder if there is anything you can do to help. Whether you already know a person with a chronic illness or you want to make some new friends, the best gift you can give is your time. This book discusses ten different ways that you can help a child who must deal with a chronic illness. Some of the ideas are big, others are small, but all of them can make a true difference in the life of a chronically ill child.
