Managing Depression

Aside from the physical side effects, depression can be a difficult thing to grapple with as well following a child’s diagnosis. 
As reported by the National Cancer Institute: “A person diagnosed with cancer faces many stressful issues. These may include”:
  • Fear of death.
  • Changes in life plans.
  • Changes in body image and self-esteem.
  • Changes in day to day living.
  • Money and legal concerns.
  • Feelings of disbelief, denial, or despair.
  • Trouble sleeping.
  • Loss of appetite.
  • Anxiety or worry about the future.
