This page from Redkite gives an overview of how parents might be feeling when their child finishes cancer treatment. Although finishing treatment is something parents have dreamed of, often it will bring up a mixture of emotions. Even though there may be excitement about going home, leaving the hospital can bring anxiety for many parents.
Redkite offers the following tips:
- Keeping contact details for the medical team at your hospital
- Talk to your doctors about putting together a list of symptoms to check on
- Ask your social worker for information about getting support to help at home
It is important to know that having mixed feelings about finishing treatment is completely normal and you’re not alone. If you would like to speak to a Redkite’s support team you can contact them here.
