Cancer Support Community - What Do I Tell the Kids?

If you are a parent, or caring for a child and cancer is in your family, this booklet is meant to give you information about a child’s general understanding of cancer, ways to talk to them about cancer, some common behaviors you may see in children, and ways to support your family through this experience.

Who We Are

The Strength Through Inspiration: A Virtual Support Group for Multiple Myeloma Patients & Caregivers who have Young Children (“MM Families”) was formed in 2021 and is a support group for Multiple Myeloma patients and caregivers who have young children. It is affiliated with the International Myeloma Foundation (“IMF”). MM Families understands how Multiple Myeloma affects families who have young children, and we look forward to virtually connecting with you on this journey.
