When your child dies: for parents and carers

  • ODAT2

When your child dies is a booklet from Redkite that gives an overview of what to expect when your child dies from cancer. It is written using the real experiences of bereaved parents.

This resource is adapted from the publication “One day at a time: When your child dies”, produced by CLIC Sargent, the UK’s leading cancer charity for children and young people, and their families.

This booklet is a part of the One day at a time series which also includes Living without your child and When your child isn’t going to get better.

Being with your child during death and after death is intensely personal, and you are likely to experience very powerful emotions in the hours and days that follow.

Redkite has further information available to bereaved parents and carers on their website, as well as support services.

Cancer Advisor has a range of resources on end of life, but we’re always looking for more content. Leave a comment below, share your own story or recommend a resource.
