Supportive care

Supportive care is an important part of cancer care. It helps children and their families meet the physical, emotional and spiritual challenges of cancer. It helps improve the quality of life of children living with cancer. It can help children to cope with cancer, its treatment and possible side effects. It can also address practical concerns such as help at home.

There are many programs and services available to help meet the needs of children living with cancer and their loved ones.
