What About Me?
by Kathleen Williams, LCSW, CSC Program Associate
For a teen who has just learned about their parent’s cancer, this is likely one of the first questions that pops into their mind: What about me?
Other questions soon follow, though seemingly contradictory and confusing:
Will my parent die or get well?
How will this affect my allowance?
Can I still have my friends over?
Why is this happening to me and my parent?
Will I have to cut back on my activities?
