PED-ONC is an unmoderated discussion list for parents, siblings, friends, and survivors of Chilhood/Adolescent Cancer.
This discussion group provides an opportunity for parents and family members of childhood/adolescent cancer survivors to share ideas, information and support.
Parents, siblings and survivors of childhood/adolescent cancer face unique challenges. The effects and consequences of a life threatening illness on family, siblings and marriage are many. Some parents may find that these concerns do not abate post-treatment. Parents and survivors may face social challenges (school, insurance and eventually employment), some will have emotional challenges (depression and anxiety post treatment), and some parents will be concerned about late effects and ongoing health problems related to treatment.
