  • Post traumatic stress hits kids of cancer patients

    Something else to think about if you are/were a parent during cancer treatment. Like we don't already have enough to worry about.

    This is probably the biggest Demon I deal with. Ironically, the very thing that endears you folks to me is the fact that you're there to support my children as well. My Son commented on just how much it meant to him to have the Moses' there to support him at the Livestrong Challenge and how much all of you helped at the GBOF party (Thinks Fed is Cool - I tend to agree). Hopefully, my Daughter is too young to have had this have a debilitating effect on her. My Son, however, was at an age to be right on the firing line. I pray to God they're both OK.

      With kick-ass parents like you and Joann, I have no doubt in my mind that they will both come out stronger from this (and we can help whichever way we can ).

        All of the closets to open!! This goes the other way too. Up from the children to the parents. I believe that it was fortunate that my life was fairly routine before Russell's cancer. My ability to learn new things and short term memory are at a humorously low level. I will not for a minute admit to birthdays!!! It is good exercise to walk in a pool, so hopefully it will be similar for my mind. !!??!! My boys are certainly aware of how much support this forum have offered. My belief is that it has been the safety net for more than one fall!!!! Thanks to all, Sharon
