To myself on the day I found out my son has a brain tumor

  • Cancer-parent

On The Mighty, Jonelle Cavill reflects on her son’s brain tumour diagnosis, treatment journey, and the ‘new normal’ that followed.

She writes: “Having a medically fragile child can be overwhelming, but it does get easier. You will settle into a routine. Support groups are out there. These moms will save your life. Find them.

Gain perspective. You know how you get stressed about dog hair on the hardwood floor, overflowing hampers and dishes constantly piled in the sink? Forget it. Embrace the mess and find all the joy and laughs you can in each and every moment. You and your family deserve it.”
