How Do You Prepare Your Daughter, Who Has Down Syndrome, For Her Leukemia Treatment?

Postby Shayan » Wed Feb 04, 2015 7:18 pm

How old is she & how good is her comprehension skills?

I tried to find a few links for you to look at, the top link has some videos which might be helpful. I know there is a book about how to deal with hospitals & treatment, Why am I going to the Hospital - By Claire Ciliotta, Carole Livingston and I know a few of my clients have used this to explain going to hospital to their child.


My Blood Brother: A Story About Childhood Leukemia - By Elizabeth Murphy-Melas Who has written a few books about dealing with illnesses in children & children with special needs.


Nancy Keene has a few too, and look as if they might be also easy to read & understand for you children to read.


Chemo, craziness & comfort: my book about childhood cancer - By Nancy Keene

Childhood leukemia: a guide for families, friends & caregivers - By Nancy Keene

Your child in the hospital: a practical guide for parents - By Nancy Keene

Hope all goes well for your little girl

That's going to be completely dependent on her age and level of understanding.

I'm sorry your daughter's having a rough time.
