Things that change with cancer

Most people are familiar with some of the side effects of cancer, such as hair loss and a loss of energy. However, almost everything changes for a family caught in the fight against cancer. St. Jude mother Catherine Greenslade shares some of the changes that occurred in her family during her daughter Emily’s battle with osteosarcoma (bone cancer).

Family relations are very difficult with a child undergoing cancer treatment. Luckily for our families, St. Jude treats the entire family during this difficult time. The hospital provides social workers, psychiatrists and pastoral care to help families cope with stressful issues.
