In this two-page factsheet, the Paediatric Integrated Cancer Service (PICS) offers guidance on advocating for your child. They have also compiled tips by parents for parents on speaking up for your child with cancer.

The factsheet says: “Being an advocate for your child means speaking up for them. This can take considerable courage. There are many reasons why you may wish to speak up for your child while he or she is receiving treatment. It is always important that you do so. These are tips compiled by parents, for parents, to help make the experience a little easier.”
