It Doesn't Have to Hurt

"Helping with pain from cancer treatment"

by Nicole - Connor


Age Group

Child (5-12 years)

When my oldest son was 4 he was diagnosed with cancer, we were thrust into a world we didn’t know. What was one of the hardest things for us as parents was how to help him best get through all the procedures he had to endure during his treatment.

Being a part of the #KidsCancerPain campaign allowed me to contribute what type of pain management worked for our family to other families and get ideas we never even thought of from other families, whether it was deep breathing,  distraction, or pain medication.
