Flu Season Tips for Pediatric Cancer Patients

We are still in the mist of flu season, and as we know being a pediatric cancer patient already takes a profound toll on the immune system. This is why it is so important to stay extra vigilant during flu season.
We have found some common trends when doing research for protecting yourself this flu season, with that here are our tips to stay as healthy and proactive as possible during this flu season:
Get the flu vaccine
Wash your hands regularly and keep hand sanitizer with you at all times. Disinfect all surfaces, toys, and so on. A great resource for “green cleaning” is Seventh Generation. This astounding company is dedicated to providing you with the healthiest products to nurture your family!
If you cough or sneeze, do so in your elbow. NOT your hands. This will help in stopping the spread of germs.
Keep Hydrated! 
Try and eat as healthy as possible….check out various nutrition information  and kid friendly recipes to try for this tip!
Do your best to incorporate a little exercise each day, even the smallest effort will do wonders. Have you seen our pilates core “anywhere, anytime” work out routines?
Make sure to avoid large crowds….we know this is something that you may already have to do because of treatment but during flu season it is that much more important
