    I am a 9 year survivor of stage IV esophageal cancer. I am currently dealing with two other cancers. I won't say survival is easy but it is doable and worth the effort.

    How can I help my children cope

      I am an oncology nurse. Can you tell me the name of that blood thinner? I can try to find a way to get it cheaper. When I speak to children I try to make them understand that with a cancer diagnosis, there are always ups and downs. However, it is a process and you have to learn to ride with the setbacks to get to the achievements. Family members are key to success. Their support does so much more than they realize when the patient needs a shoulder to lean on. Great warriors can lose a battle every now and then but they rarely lose the war. Best of luck to you and your family.

      @BoiseB, I am so sorry that you are going through all of this. No matter their age, it is always hard for the children. I don't have any advice for you, because I don't know if I did anything special to help mine. Hopefully after your MRI, your son will sleep better. For me, the unknown and the waiting are the worst. I will remember all of you in my prayers. Take care.

      Time was what helped my son. Once he realized my demise wasn't going to happen immediately, he seemed to settle down. He still worried, but not nearly as much as he did at first.

      Maybe your son can take a mild sleeping aid to help him get a good night's sleep. Losing sleep won't change your diagnosis/prognosis but could make him sick.
