A letter from a child whose mum is affected by cancer!
A parent’s illness is one of the most difficult challenges a child can face. Life at home change overnight and nothing is the same anymore!

Don’t lie to me or protect me – I need to know the truth so I can trust you when you say ‘you are fine’!
Don’t leave me out - I need to be involved in the family discussion, talk to me, and include me!
Please communicate – I hear everything anyway and I don’t like to figure things out myself since I might get it wrong – talk to me!
